44 is the new 34. It's just not that old anymore. At least, it better not be....
Happy Birthday and Thanks for your service!

My body may be aging but parts of my mind and soul are still childlike, when those parts grow up that is when you are old.

If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.
Hate to have to tell you this, but 44 is NOT old! My beard is older than that. I have kids older than that and a granddaughter that is more than half that age. 44 is young! I'll be 70 in February, and I still don't consider myself "old". Age is more a state of mind and attitude than anything. Hope you, me, and all the rest of the forum members keep on having birthdays for MANY more years.
PS As someone else said, I remember exactly where I was when JFK was shot. Ft Campbell, KY with the 101st Airborne Division. Instant alert to go to war if it was foreign motivated/prelude to an attack!!!! Very tense time for several hours!

I have rifles older than that; and like me, other than a few scratches and a few new parts, we all work fine!

It does not matter how old you are between 21 and 65. Once you can drink nothing changes until you can retire.
I'm 43 and the most significant difference I have from when I was 21 is when I see a teen girl in a skimpy dress now, I get s sicking knot im my gut and think about my 8 yo niece. Hoping and praying she takes a different path.

I realized I was getting old when I had that epiphany " I sound just like my Dad!"
I'd rather be lucky than good any day
There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.
Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.
My father once told me: "If you think being a Grandfather makes you feel old, then try being the father of a Grandfather" He was right as usual.
I carry to protect myself and my loved ones from the BG's. Not to solve societies problems. That said: if more carried the deterrent would only have a positive overall effect on those problems.
Just hope you don't get traded in on two .22's
HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Now, myself, I'm 20 years old with 45 years experience!

When did you get old? Somewhere between kid number 4 and 5. Happy Birthday. You many not be able to go as long as youdid when you where 21 but now you know what you are doing.
Husband comes home on Monday and find a letter from his wife. To my husband, as a 66th Birthday present to you I am spending the entire week with my 21 year old fitness trainer. As an accountant you should be better at math. It is harder to get 66 into 21 than it is 21 to get into 63. Love your wife.
