Harry Birthday to me!!!!

Let me be the first to wish you a happy #53, Rob. Another trip around the sun...yee haw!

Happy Birthday, you old Scudder(remember Festus Haigin?)

I turned 48 on the 12th. Lincoln's birthday. I am the same height. I have the same sized hands and feet. Just less of the cadaverous visage- more of the corn fed, watermelon head look. If you stick around long enough, you get to be the old guy.

I would have taken better care of myself if I had known that I was going to live this long.

Congrats!! You notice it seems the years are starting to go by faster now? I sorta picked up on that over the last couple of years. And though not quite as *wisened* as you, my half century mark comes up the first week in May. Damn, you know we are both old enough to remember when you could go to the movies on Sat afternoon ...see two movies a couple of cartoons, have a drink and a box of popcorm all for a dollar or less? Then again the world was in black and white up until 1965..

Happy Day...may it bring you a good year.

Guess I wasn't the only deviant loser born on the 16th... 1958 for me. Enjoy the day, and only think happy thoughts.

Did I say "deviant loser"? No, you seem quite normal to me! Ha!

Happy Birthday you old fart!

May your beer be cold and your women hot.

May the sun shine bright and your burdens be light.

May you continue to be a guiding light in the blogosphere for untold years yet to come.

Happy Birthday, A-Man!
I'll make my 53rd in April.
Seems 1952 was quite a year.

I knew an 83 year old engineer who worked till he died and was still sharp. He once commented that it was his b’day and I asked if he still celebrates them. He said ”sure, it’s when I STOP having them that I’m worried about.” I miss that guy.
Happy Birthday A-man!
