  1. Age 171, 173, etc. on each posting. That doesn’t seem to make sense. I’m guessing none of these people lived past 100! Just fyi. Ciao.

  2. Hello My Pal(s)! You are correct that none of these people lived passed 100. LOL. However, the idea of this posting was to list what age they would be now had they lived to today.
    It’s a good thing you are my best friends for making such a riveting statement. Silly pals!
