Happy Birthday and welcome aboard!

I heard a rumor, something about blueberrys and New Jersey. Probably nothing to it though.

Well Happy Birthday and welcome to the 50+. Besides pie you also need to have colonoscopy just so we know you are in excellent health.

Thanks all, but, that colonoscopy thing is not something I am looking forward to. I wasn't looking forward to that prostate thing either. Happened anyway though.
BTW, as I preparing for my last prostate exam, I noticed a sign stating that if you wanted you could have a nurse present during your exam. I told my doctor "Yeah, Let's get a bunch of other folks in here to watch this."

Hey, that's no rumor and I have the T-shirt to prove it!

Happy Birthday, xtrajack!
I would recommend the colonoscopy thing, but the last time I did that here, one of these guys accused me of offering to perform it!

Welcome! Don't forget to run out and get some Senior Vitamins.


And, by all means, get yourself a colonoscopy.

The drugs they give you for that are great! The laxatives, I mean..............................
