I have to stumble home from work and take a nap before I hurt myself :-)



When I was 10 I thought 20 was old.
When I was 20 I thought 40 was old.
When I was 50 I thought 60 was old.
When I was 60 I thought 70 was old.

Now that I'm closing in on 70 I know that 70 is old. :-(

Fred,

You're just suffering the latent effects of wartime parts shortages. Although, you should outlast the baby boomers.

70 is not old. I'm past it now and it was little different than 50, 65 or 69. I still like old cars, young women & country music. The priority order varies by the day and other factors.

Happy Birthday

Fred,
I think of it a little differently:

When I was 10 I thought I was 20.
When I was 20 I thought I was 40.
When I was 50 I thought I was 50.
When I was 60 I thought I was 50.
I'm hoping that in 4 years when I turn 70 that I'll think I'm 40!!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY HOWEVER OLD YOU THINK YOU ARE!!!!

Happy B-day Fred. At this age it's time to drop your inhibitions. I all but propositoned the clerk at Trader Joe's this morning. Never had the guts before.

She was pleased, but didn't take my fone #.

Well, Ralph, what the heck would you have done if she'd have taken her apron off and said, "Let's go?"

That's what I always worry about, what if she says yes.

No kiddin' Stan, but I think us older guys are pretty safe from that problem. The younger women seem to think we're cute, but.....

Holy Mother of God, I will be 80 the last day of this month and that is Chinese New Year. So I guess I will have a popping good time. My Chinese Girl Friend is taking me and another girl for lunch, hum that is going to be interesting.
Tell you the results/story next month if I live after that.

Happy Birthday Fred! I have to say, when I hit "the big seven oh" a couple years ago, I quit the numbers thing. As far as I'm concerned, "old age" is anybody that's ten or more years older than I am!

(....that might not make sense to you or most others Fred, but I'll bet Bill can relate to that.......)

I'm 73 and I don't feel any different from when I was 50...until I try to get out from under a car.
One thing I've noticed is the older I get the less people expect of me.
That's kinda nice.

I'll wait until tomorrow to wish you a happy birthday and it won't matter because you won't remember... at your age!

Happy Birthday Fred

I turned 85 two days before Christmas, and am glad to be alive. I can generally do most things, but I stay off ladders, slow down when facing a set of stairs to let my gyroscope catch up with me. I haven't lost any parts in the last two years so that's helpful.

Wish everyone a healthy and prosperous new year

Sincerely

Jim Weir

Happy Birthday Fred....and may good health be with you....that's a blessing itself.....I am only 63 and I have my days.....I like the one getting out from under the car....I rolled off the creeper to help pick myself up and twisted my back and ended up three days later at the Doc's office....that had never happened before....so I am very careful now getting up....

Dave, I enjoyed reading why men are happier people.....so true....

Fred, I'm ahead of you by a couple of years. Two thoughts:

"Old" is always about 15 years older than you are.

The older you get, the more good-looking women you see.

Happy birthday!

Fred,
Happy Birthday....I am in the same boat as Dick Lodge when it comes to age.
The young, good looking girls can HURT you. Stick with the older gals that move slower, less demanding, don't get mad for you spending time in the shop and know how to cook.

SMILE!

Happy Birthday, Duane! I remember when you were young.

Thanks for the good wishes.
I am currently sitting in the waiting room for an MRI and feeling old because my knee hurts.
Actually my knee hurts more than the rest of my body.
I hope they don't try to find my brain cause it left a few years ago

Earlier I said that I am now choosing soup and am surprised that most of you are not doing the same

Fred Happy Birthday! Soup or super... it's all in your mind!

Yesterday as I was approaching the door to a store, a cute young lady jumped in front of me to open and hold the door for me...I really felt all of my 65 years! I guess I'll take the soup from now on too.

Happy birthday Fred.
You are as young as you feel. All the best for years to come.
67 for me today and warm soup sounds pretty good after 16 days of below zero weather. Time to snowbird to AZ.

Thanks guys

Bugsy Stevens - One of the NASCAR Modified Champions used tell this joke.


An older lady runs around the nursing home with her skirt held high and yells "Super Sex"




One of the old gentlemen looks up and replies "I'll take the soup!"

Happy birthday young feller! Here's hoping you have many more and that you still feel young when you are older. Just avoid mirrors! :-)
Norm
