But I'm not quite dead yet!

Yes you are!

Ahhhhh. I love Monty Python movies! 'Monty Python and the Holy Grail' is by far my favorite, with lines like the above, and "It's only a flesh wound! Come back and fight like a MAN, you NINNY!", "I fart in your general direction", and "We are the knights who say NI!", which quickly changes to "We are now the Knights who say...”Ekki-Ekki-Ekki-Ekki-PTANG. Zoom-Boing. Z'nourrwringmm" and so on, and so on, and so on.

Is it no wonder then, when I read about this story this morning, the Holy Grail came to mind?

"Man presumed dead in Big Thompson flood is alive"

(Darrell) Johnson confirmed that he, his wife, Kathy, and their two young daughters took a vacation to Estes Park in July 1976 and booked a cabin at the Sleepy Hollow resort, which sat about five miles west of Drake next to the river.

He chose the resort based on advertising brochures and its affordable price, Johnson said. But the cabin they were given was too rustic and in need of repair for the family to enjoy.

The family decided to leave early and go to Denver to visit an amusement park and the popular Casa Bonita restaurant. They left the morning of July 31.

When the terrible storm and deadly flood struck that night, Johnson and his family were far from the canyon. The next day they drove home to Woodward, Okla.

The family heard about the flood but didn't make the connection between the devastation and how close they had come to being caught in it, Johnson said.

And so... as the saying goes... I'M NOT QUITE DEAD YET!
