Topic tags/keywords: zuki 40

Me . . . yep Zuki turned 40 this morning February 16, 2009.

Yea . . . I know. You older folks are saying “oh to be 40 again” and you younger people are saying “40 . . . that is sooo oooold!” I’m still trying to figure out which one I subscribe to.

I decided to take the day off work, not sure if I will be going out in the shop though. My darling wife surprised me with a Kreg K3 Master System this morning. I have been eyeing one for some time. Thank you dear. Oh . . . she purchased my birthday gift with HER credit card this time. :-)

Anyhoo . . . time to drag these 40 year old bones off the couch and go do something constructive.

PS – Pic is from our friends at Lee Valley where DW purchased the kit.

Happy 40!!
You will find, I’m sure, that 40 is just the beginning of the best time of your life. Not too young and not too old. (I’m not sure when the “too old” part arrives – I guess it is when you THINK you are old.)

Anyway… happy birthday and congrats on the great gift. I look forward to seeing what it helps you create!

Happy Birthday Zuki, the big 40 huh? Good for you, still a kid. I got socks older than that. Well I wish you 50 or 60 more if you want that many. Most of all good health and happiness, if you got that you got it all. m

Congratualtions, Zuki/ both on your birthday and having such a thoughtful wife. And putting it on HER card is a bonus as well. Enjoy your new toy.

Happy Birthday. Great gift. At my age I would not be forty again. 28 maybe but not 40.
