He claimed to have been born in December, 1870, but there were no official records. (It's not as if there are surviving childhood friends to back up his story, either.

What do you think of such a long life?
I would not want to outlive my family and friends. It would be interesting to live through so much history however and see the changes which had happened.

I suppose it depends on your quality of life and your fear of death. I don't suppose the who regret not dying before they got old. Unlike some music lovers.
I seem to be having a time where friends and family are popping off and the realisation that I'm probably next is actually doing my head in, to be honest.
It's four funerals and one wedding these days.
