    Turned 59, did the ride, how did I get here so fast.

    Not the ride, the age. I turned around a couple times and now I am counting down to 60. Don't get me wrong, I'm glad to be here. But some one please slow the parade down.

    The ride was refreshing, chilly, went out and saw Lake Mead and found a new Sonic on the way home. Love them tater tots, what a great creation. Carrot Cake for the party. Its all good!

    I'm not far behind. Just remember that we all get old at the same rate, it is just that some started a bit earlier.

    Happy birthday but Carrot Cake? Not the best cake to have . Mine was Chocolate with butter cream Icing and sprinkles over the top- decorated by my Grand daughter.

    but 59 is an in-between age. Too young to wear the slippers permanently and the age where the bars get raised above the saddle to compensate for the aching back.
    How long was I in the army? Five foot seven.

    Did you patronize Sonic while you were on your bike?

    Happy Birthday and bon appetite!

    The parade won't likely slow down. Rather, you've got to pay attention and get as much out of it as you can.
    A conclusion is the place where you got tired of thinking. - S. Wright

    I'm closing in on the Big 6-0 myself, which arrives at the end of August.

    Truth be told, except for the gray hair, I look and feel better than I did at the Big 4-0.

    Last time I plugged all the numbers into those stupid "real age" calculators, it spit out 46.

    Counting down to 60 is better than counting up from 60 (like I am!). Hopefully, though, you'll get there too!

    Yes I did, it was chilly and I needed some fire for the belly. They have a picnic area in the midst of the parking area. There was a kiosk set up for ordering and paying-so mechanical.

    Anything decorated by a grand child is better than anything else. Congrats.

    I am in trouble--After the little party on Saturday there were two slices of the cake left. I had one Sunday and the last one at midday today. 3PM and my grand daughter came in from swimming and asked for a piece of her cake. I had to placate her with a big serving of icecream with Turkish delight on top----and sprinkles.

    She still wants her slice of cake though.

    Do they pay for the cake, pizza, donuts, anything? If the don't, tell them to pony up if they want the last piece.

    Oh Mikey-you have opened the grumpy old man closet now. My favorite line is, What do you mean "fair?" I paid the "Fare" for everything you own, how is that "Fair?" But i don't say it very often. The last peice game is actually fun and has evolved into hiding things and putting rocks in boxes to have the weighted feel of still having something in it.

    If you don't mind my bragging a little, I ride with about 10 cm saddle to bar drop. I can rest my knuckles on the floor with straight legs.

    Still not as flexible as I was in my 20s when I could palm the floor, though.

    But I'm a beanpole.

    Congratulations !!!

    Once, while in my anxious teens, I wished that I was older.
    My Father, while not a learned man, but wise, nonetheless, told me this:

    When you reach 21, you'll blink, and a week will pass.
    When you reach 35, you'll blink and a month will pass.
    When you reach 50, you'll blink and a year will pass.

    My advice ? Quit blinkin'.
    I'm not pokey, but I'm certainly not speedy... sorta half-fast, I guess...

    Zona-major KUDOs, must be an ASU not a UofA grad-EH?

    Mprelaw, my older brother and I push each other on reaching the floor. I need to put some more work into it.

    And yeah shadoman-no blink, just enjoy.

    Happy birthday. The parade does not slow down, if anything time moves faster (or seems to) as we get older.

    Now is the time to do all those things that you always wanted to do.

    Things to remember when you get old:-
    Never walk past a rest room.
    Never waste an erection.
    Never trust a fart.
