    Amy Winehouse joined the 27 Club.

    Same age as when Jim Morrisson, Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin died.

    And on Abbey Road album crosswalk cover - the is a VW in the background with lic plate # 28IF. (if Paul had lived)

    They call it 'the fast lane' for a reason.

    I always thought the people who lasted were the best musicians anyway. The Claptons...etc...

    I skipped 27 and went straight to 56.
    Seems that way anyhow.

    I don't know how it came to be, but the whole year I was 26 I thought I was 27. So on what I thought was my 28th birthday, I realized I was only 27.

    So 27 was a very good year for me. It was as though I got an extra year of life. :lol:

    At least Kareem didn't die at 27. Neither did Paula Abdul. Or Jabbar Bar Binks.

    Yeah, 27 has its' hazards.

    Nicest age is 65. In many states that's when property tax exemptions kick in. Also, free hunting/fishing/trapping and registration of one motor vehicle regardless of vintage or value.

    Medicare sucks, though, unless you can find a facility that will accept it. I've been lucky in that and I wish you the same.
