Roy Bosley has lived a good, long life. He’s lived and worked abroad, and throughout his life he’s pursued an avocation of artwork — oil painting, metal work, watercolors, wood carving. He recently learned he has leukemia and was given a prognosis of 90 to 120 days, so he’s counting down 100 days on the calendar, which is his wife’s birthday and a day before their 59th wedding anniversary.
