"I've done a lot of complaining here, but of all the things I've complained about, I can't complain about my life." - Andy Rooney in his final essay, My Lucky Life.

Sunday, the 92-year-old made his 1,097th and last appearance on 60 Minutes. “I wish I could do this forever,” he said, admitting he's dreaded his retirement.

The long-running CBS news program, which has featured Andy Rooney since its 1978 debut, also conducted a long interview with the writer/commentator.

Poignantly, but with his vintage curmudgeonly humor, he closed by thanking his fans. However, “If you do see me in a restaurant, please, just let me eat my dinner.”
