Well I know a lot of the LJ’s are older than me. But there a lot of LJ’s younger than me. I turn 51 today. Woodworking has started making me feel younger, because of keeping me busy I guess. I only hope that I don’t slide down that hill faster if I slip on some saw dust LOL..

Happy Birthday Tim! My favorite line is ’ how old would you be if you did not know how old you are?

Enjoy the roller coaster ride of life. Put some roller skates on and make the ride easier, faster and scarier! ;-)

Happy Birthday Tim. I turned 63 in May and I realize the older I get the more feelings I have, love for my Grandchildren and pain in these old joints.
