    I had hoped my maternal grandfather would live to be 100 (in 2011); he only made it to 96.

    Those are great moments to remember and cherish for both Earl & Nelson ! Life is a precious gift to everyone.

    My great-grandmother claimed that the secret to a long life was to sprinkle a pinch of gun powder on one’s oatmeal every morning. She did this religiously until she died at the age of 103. She left behind 10 children, 45 grandchildren, 32 great-grandchildren, 25 great-great-grandchildren, and a 40-foot hole where the crematorium used to be.

    There’s been some decently heavy subject matter in Pickles of late. I like it. I hope the author/artist continues to let us have sweet “awww” moments with these characters we have come to love so much.

    It’s best to have those two measures align at the last.

    I hope I die peacefully in my sleep like my grandfather, not yelling and screaming like the passengers in his car.

    There are states and other countries where you do have the option of checking out when you choose- not waiting in pain and using up money that could be used for those who still have productive lives to live. Or, you can just take a handful of sleeping pills. I agree that I intend to want to as long as I live.

    I’ve always said that I intend to live to 120 years old, in order to amaze my friends … and piss off my enemies!

    I have NEVER understood the religious stricture against suicide – it makes no sense whatsoever, unless the “god” referenced in the literature is heavily into “S & M”, then it make at least a little sense.

    When I was Nelson’s age, it was incomprehensible not to want to live forever; now that I’m Earl’s age and everything hurts all the time, it makes perfect sense to check out!

    Well, you might ask, why don’t you?

    Simple, really. I’ve turned into an ornery old ‘cuss’ and I’ll be danged if I’ll give that many people pleasure – so there!

    I think the real beauty of this cartoon is the last line. I think all senior citizens (and perhaps some younger) fear continuing to live long past our desire to do so and becoming a burden to our children while destroying our life savings we may have hoped to leave to our children. May all of us die peacefully when we are ready to go…

    There is a very good message here.

    By the way, while I don’t want anyone hurting self, I believe personal freedom requires all be allowed to terminate their lives. There are many who believe correctly that they could reduce suicides by keeping guns away from potentially suicidal people. To me the real problem is when they decide to kill others first.

    That’s the dumbest-looking river I’ve ever seen.
