I'm so glad you enjoyed Eighty and Out. :)
My mom has rheumatoid arthritis and struggles with a lot of pain. One day she told me that she and my Aunt Kathy didn't want to grow old. "Eighty and out," she said. "That's our plan." When she said that, the line jumped out at me, and I felt it was a good idea for a story.
