    I made it to 33x2!

    Well I made it to 33x2! 66 years ago today a great man was born! Well maybe not exactly great, but ok. At times I can be a legend in my own mind. Lol Anyway quite an accomplishment! I remember an awful lot of people from my youth never figured Id make it this far. Boy did I show them! Just felt the need to post this. Probably goes along with being a legend in my own mind. Lol

    Hey, I’m happy you made it my friend. Just think how crispy you’d be if you made it to 66x2.

    Next time we talk, remind me I got something fun to tell ya.

    Happy Birthday!

    Cool.

    I went through that last year. I hope you're still healthy enough to buy green bananas with confidence.

    (The idea is you'll still be around long enough to eat 'em when they get ripe in a few days.)

    I just hit 66 in September. I try to not be one of those guys who never realizes reality, or fails to see the humor in it. I'm also a truck driver, which gives me time to think of this stuff as I pass the miles. I've got a file of these ummmm, witticisms that have rattled out of my convoluted mind.

    There comes a time in a man’s life, when he will admit that he is not the man he used to be.
    And then, later in life, the truly honest man will realize that he never was the man he thought he was. jdscholer
    It seems that people who do almost nothing, often complain loudly when it's time to do it.

    Quite an accomplishment! I made it myself last month and realized I had outlived my Dad and 4 out of 5 uncles by 2 years. Kinda like seeing that the finish line is approaching...
    Old enough to know better, young enough to do it anyway!

    I passed that milestone over a year ago. Amazing how the world has changed. I never thought I would make it this far after all the close calls I had. Happy Birthday!

    I didn't figure I'd make it past 30, and here I am at 67... ***? I don't think I'm a legend, but I have been known to have delusions of adequacy now and again!

    Congrats for making it this far, and hang in there!

    At age sixty-six I was still describing myself as middle aged.
