27. No man knows the hour
Let see:

I'm 50 pound over weight
Eat all the wrong foods
Get no where near enough exercise
Work in a radioactive environment on a daily basis.

But I am still alive, while my late wife was:

Skinny as a rail
A consummate vegetable lover
Road her bike 20 to 75 miles a day
Was A school Teacher in a new building
And died at 40 from a cancer that normally kills old men

As my grandfather use to say, "Everybody wants to go to Heaven, but nobody wants to die"
