Greetings to all my LJ friends:
In my mind, I’m still about 30 years old, but the old body knows the truth. Anyway, I’m here alone, and I wanted all my LJ friends to help me celebrate. I think I”ll grab another cup of coffee before heading to the shop…...................!!

On December 11th, 1946 at 12:02 a.m., I came into this world naked, crying, and hungry. You do the math as to my age !! As a lot of you know, last week was my 32nd anniversary, today is my b.d., and I still have Christmas to go. It’s gonna be a good month. I might get a new toy to play with if I’m good. My wife said this morning before leaving for her beauty shop: ” If you want it, you might get something tonight you haven’t had in a while ! HHHHHHHMM…. Oh boy…........ I can’t hardly wait….... a good liver and onion supper !!!

ROTFL, Rick. Happy birthday!

Having just celebrated my 51st two days ago, I could not help but notice something:

Why is it that once a man reaches a certain age, his friends all have to make some comment about whether he plans to “get lucky” for his birthday? It’s like they’re saying once you’re over 50, once a year is about all you can expect.

I’m sure glad my wife didn’t get that memo yet. :-)

Congratulations, Rick. I have said many times that after #21 birthdays don’t seem to mean as much anymore. But today is still your special day. I am sure your wife will give you something that you haven’t had in awhile….... a new tool for sure!! :)

Hey happy birthday!! I just turned 30 a few weeks ago. I celebrated the same way I came into the world: eyes closed, naked and looking for a pair of breasts.
