Here's a picture from the party...
She looks great doesn't she? Laughing well is the best revenge. Some seriously believe that joking around is a key to a long life. George Burns, Jack Benny, Milton Berle, Betty White...if you're funny, or in the case of Mort Sahl, if you were once funny, you can live into your 80's and beyond.
Let's not forget who wrote the book on the subject. It was Phyllis! I remember interviewing her for Writer's Digest when she published: "The Joys of Aging...And How to Avoid Them."

PAUL McCARTNEY holds a box of DEPENDS aloft, after completing his two-and-a-half hour concert at Yankee Stadium. His "Band with the Runs" tour is calling attention to problems his audience can relate to. Paul is 69 years old, and many fans in attendance were even older, and very much in need of "a little help" from adult diapers.
"If we're going to be honest," Sir Paul said, "this is a problem for adults of any age. Do you think The Beatles didn't get dysentery in some of the weird places we visited? Then there are illnesses such as Crohn's disease. Gays who just wear out their bottoms. If you're on stage, or alone minding the store, or standing performing brain surgery, you can't rush to a bathroom! The answer is to wear protection! Then you're ok if you have to "carry that weight" or if your urinary tract goes "helter skelter."
Paul was too much of a showman to alter his set-list too much, but he amended his lyrics for "Band With the Runs," "The Long and Winding Colon," "Blackturd," "Live And Let Diaper," "I've Just Seen a Fece," "Maybe I'm Incontinent," "Day Dripper" and "Ob-La-Doodi."
