ok, so I'm sitting around waiting for the bad news from my surgeon . . but I am sitting in front of my birthday present:

My actually "big day" is the 14th of November . . . which is the day Direct TV shows up to upgrade the DVR to the HD model . . .

but even not being in HD it still looks great.

Your birthday's three days after mine, and I haven't even started thinking about it yet. Hope you have a happy one! And I hope you get good news from your surgeon!

My birthday is not in November. Never has been, either.

I am, however, all birthdayed out for this year. My 50th was in June, and my youngest daughter's 21st was a couple of weeks ago. It would have been my mother's 80th this year as well....talk about a triple whammy!

Hey KP, that's one BIG telly! I bought a big one a couple of years ago, 42" screen - that's positively puny in comparison to yours! Strange, really, seeing as I hardly ever watch it.....

:D :D :D

From a "slightly" older woman, I just have to say that, IMHO, men don't even begin to get reeaalllyy good until they hit 40!! Men in their 40's and 50's have got it all over the younger men in the "finesse" department! (No offense to all of you younger men intended!!) I've felt this way since I was in my early 30's. There's just something a little extra sexy about men in their 40's & 50's! (And, I know for a fact that I'm not the only woman who feels this way!)

Happy Birthdays to all of you! And wear those 40's & 50's proudly!!! We appreciative women will be watching!! :D

HAPPY BIRTHDAY Kingpatzer. :D

We'll all be around to help you watch. And play with those nice pedals and recording gizmo you got too, while we're there.

Looks like we have birthdays on the 11th , 13th and 14th coming up. Just a wee gap there on the 12th - for me to squeeze in.

I'll be 61 on the 12th of November. Geez was it really 1946 when I arrived.... doesn't time fly when you're having fun.... :wink:

Cheers,

Chris
