    I didn't realize it was that long. He was a chain smoker, too bad. Otherwise he might have lived longer.

    I have watched most of his movies. He was a man's man. I still have a old Outdoor Life magazine from 1965 and on the back cover is a full page picture of the Duke smoking a Camel cigarette.

    Like oats through a horse......so go the days of my life.
    I'm only in my 60s,I have a nice long life ahead......big plans.
    Eating,sleeping and swatting flies......life is good.
