    Turned 50 Today!

    Howdy y'all. Today is my fiftieth birthday, so I can now officially post in this forum, and get to go to the 50's and Older Party at Christmas time. That's about all the change I foresee. I do confess, I cheated and posted in here a few times before when I wasn't 50 yet.

    Whee!

    Happy birthday, and welcome. We'll forgive your past transgressions, even though we really do try to keep the youngsters out.

    Happy Birthday to you both.

    I would like the chance to be 25 again. And rich. Not sure I'd kill for it though.

    Happy Birthday. I've been here a week, and it seems a reasonable place.

    I can never remember how whacked I was in previous years so always strive for new levels. It's also my retirement plan. Eventually someone will lock me up..

    Thank you all for the birthday wishes.

    A while back, I saw this guy on TV. He was 107, and still driving his car and all. He had a T-shirt that said "Oh to be 100 again!"
