62!!! You’re still just a young’n! We have a saying in Wisconsin … ‘Age is only important if you are a cheese.’

Happy Birthday.

Congratulations, thats the age when I started woodworking. Now 75 and still at it. The only thing I regret is all the good old tools made in USA I could have bought.

Happy Birthday, Alistair, I have a birthday early next month. I think Gerry said it best…...age is a relative matter.

Spent much of this day in the shop, just having a good time. Hope you had a good time too…..........

Happy Birthday Alistair to a “spring chicken”!

62 is long gone in my rear view mirror and even though it says on the mirror ”things are closer than the appear” it’s still a long way behind me.
