Eey-oop Vic, luckily it’s St George you’re having the tilt at, not the dragon, so beware lest he thinks you’re the dragon and spits you.

Happy Birthday, Jaysen, if it really is your birthday!

Thanks guys!

I think I'm over the "getting old" hump finally. I woke up this morning and there were no new creaks or aches that I didn't remember from the previous year. And a quick inventory of the last 12 months shows that I'm settling into "old man status quite well.
* Heavily modifying an "old car" into what I want.
* Welding stuff instead of buying stuff (for the above project)
* Go to bed at 9PM
* Get out of bed at 5:30 AM -- without an alarm
* Discover that
1. Scotch is better than beer.
2. Scotch is better than water.
3. Scotch makes welds better.
4. Rum is better than scotch.
* Realizing that my idea of a perfect day only involves a nap.

Do we agree that my "young man" card has expired?

I have a wife and 2 kids that I can only attribute to a wiggle, a giggle, and the realization that she was out of my league so I might as well be happy with her as a friend. 26 years marriage later, I can't imagine life without her. -Me 10/7/09

Since I am unsure if Jaysen and I are friends with an established repertoire of well-meaning ribbing, or if he genuinely hates me but does his best to tone down to a polite(ish) level in public, I shall offer two alternative greetings:

1) happy birthday Jaysen, you old grump.
2) happy birthday Jaysen, you old grump.

Have a great day, buddy!

Perfect! This needs to be made into a card. I shall buy the first one and send it to vic-k.

And Piggy, remember what mom always said, "they only pick on you because they like you". I'm not sure how the bloody nose supported her position, but I'll leave you to answer the question of how accurate that statement is.

You can still remember things from year to year?

On the above evidence, no.

Happy birthday, young 'un. (Or as my wife's uncle used to say: "May your pigeons always come back.")
