    The first sign you're getting old.

    You wake up in the morning, stumble into the bathroom, put your hands on the sink.

    Then you look in the mirror and go.............

    "DAD?"

    Happy Birthday Mike!

    You're only as old as you feel, dear sir...I pretty much stopped counting after 22.

    I think of the passing of a year's calendar as gaining another year of experience.

    A wife comes home on a Friday and find a letter from her husband. To my wife, as a 66th Birthday present to myself I am spending the entire weekend with my 21 year old secretary. Will be home on Monday. Love your husband.

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.

    Cool

    Happy Birthday "Old Man"..........

    I was 65 last birthday and I can still remember all those things you can remember.

    Trouble is I can't seem to remember what I did yesterday and what I am suppose to do today.

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY to you MIKE !!

    Just remember your only really old when you can no longer take VIAGRA because it might cause your PACE-MAKER/DEFIBILATOR to go into TILT MODE.

    Happy birthday Mike. Here's an "old story" for your birthday....


    An old prospector walks his tired old mule into a western town one day. He'd been out in the desert for about six months without a drop of whiskey. He walked up to the first saloon he came to and tied his old mule to the hitch rail. As he stood there brushing some of the dust from his face and clothes, a young gunslinger walked out of the saloon with a gun in one hand and a bottle of whiskey in the other.


    The young gunslinger looked at the old man and laughed, saying, "Hey old man, have you ever danced?"


    The old man looked up at the gunslinger and said, "No, I never did dance. I just never wanted to."

    A crowd had gathered by then and the gunslinger said, "Well, you old fool, you're gonna' dance now," and started shooting at the old man's feet.


    The old prospector was hopping around and everybody was laughing. When the gunslinger fired his last bullet, he holstered his gun and turned around to go back into the saloon.

    The old man reached up on the mule, drew his shotgun, and pulled both hammers back making a double clicking sound. The gunslinger heard the sound and everything got quiet. The crowd watched as the gunslinger slowly turned around looking down both barrels of the shotgun.

    The old man asked, "Did you ever kiss a mule's butt?"


    The gunslinger swallowed hard and said, "No. But I've always wanted to."


    The lessons from this story are:

    1. Don't waste ammunition.

    2. Don't mess with old people.

    Happy Birthday Mike. ;-)

    You'll never be old if you go by my definition of "old"; "Anyone that is older than you." When you're 20, 30 is old and then when you hit 30, its suddenly not so old anymore. You're 44 now and you don't feel old and I suspect when you hit 50, its not going to seem so old either. I remember talking to a good friend that was 85 at the time she said it but she told me that even now, she didn't feel old. She was a wonderful woman that stayed active and was always doing something and I think this is the key to staying young.

    I'm 41 and I can tell I'm not the man I was when I was my 30s. I don't see as well, my joints pop and I'm not near as strong as I used to be, etc. Getting older though has given me experiences and with that, a perspective that I couldn't have had when I was younger. You have already mentioned all of the experiences that you've had and that is something that wasn't possible when you were young. Just imagine how many more you're going to have and how many more you have awaiting you. But now, you have experience to guide you as opposed to naiveté and the foolishness of youth.

    Continue to live each day to its fullest and enjoy life to the best of your ability.

    I like Smitty's idea about getting a 44 to mark the occasion. I might start saving up now to get mine. ;-)

    God bless,
    DCG

    I hadn't actually thought about buying a .44 magnum for my birthday but that is a darn good idea.

    And next year, I can get myself a .45! Hey, this isn't sounding too bad anymore!
