|Shasta County resident Merle Haggard died April 6, 2016.|
I feel sad - just heard about Carrie Fisher. The young people on social media are commenting,
"something is in the air"
because 2016 lost so many and how 2017, has to be better.
How naive! WHO are these snowflakes????
I'll tell you what is in the air - it's called LIFE, old age and abusing-your-body-when-you-were- young-and-you-die-early.
Prince, Alan Thicke and Patty Duke, Florence Henderson, Gene Wilder, Doris Roberts, Abe Vigoda, Garry Shandling, and Merle Haggard are the ones that really bothered me this past year. Merle was a Shasta County resident - where I live.
We are going to be seeing more of this - I hate to sound cold; I don't mean to be. It's just a fact of life. We all die. No one is immune.
I don't know if any of you think of this, but it makes me think about my health - My own mortality. I will be 63 and "the plan" is to make it to at least 80.
You just never know....
