I'm 40. I feel 20. My wife says I act like a 4 year-old. I guess it's all good.

Congrats on your milestone birthday, MV!

So far, this has been my best decade. Hope you find it the same! Now, go ride 40 miles!

I saw that headline and thought, "Mike Vandeman was only 40!!??"

Anyway, MV, just wait until your 50s. Then it gets to be fun. Hippy bird doo, two ewes.

My sister hit 50 this year, I hit 40, we both agreed to ignore each others' birthday as the present.

The best thing about getting older is you get to ride further to keep the fat off.

How'd that happen? By having the good sense not to pass on yet. Let's hope that trend continues. Happy b-Day, MV. And welcome to the joys of creeping decreptitude.
