Hey Ken, age is all what you make of it. :twisted: My wife thinks I act less than half my age :lol: I still feel like I'm 16 at times. At least mentally. Give me a loud guitar and I'm a Kid again.

Hi all - And Happy Birthday to all of you November babys....
There seems to be more here at GN, then former U.S. Presidents!
You're right, if there are any former U.S. Presidents here on GN, they're keeping pretty quiet about it. Maybe some of the older guys down in the Beginners' forum...

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!!

Think you could point some of those appreciative women towards England, Elecktra?

:D :D :D

I like the sound of that.

I already have a lovely wife, but are you allowed to have a 'spare' in Texas?? Or is that just Utah?? :P Maybe wives in different keys or something??? :wink:

Cheers,

And you can even get Newcastle Brown there!

And the MUSIC!!! Just walking down one street in Dallas I heard Blues, Jazz, Rock, Country and some kind of hip-hop/rap all coming from different bars....

I'll go back one day - as soon as finances permit!

Just remind me to never, ever EVER again eat at Dickey's Barbeque Pit.............

:D :D :D

No Dickey's? Isn't that the famous brisket place in the Dallas area? Man, I love that place. Makes me wish I had a need to go to Dallas.

No, Chris, you're only legally allowed one spouse! :D Although......

I've got a bunch of dead relatives who were polygamists (my mother was into genealogy and found out all sorts of things!). One man, Ezekial LeBaron, had 7 wives and 49 children. Some of his descendents turned out to be fairly normal, but there was one branch that went a little "off". I think he was Ezekial's great-grandson, Ervil LeBaron who started his own "offshoot" cult, loosely based on the Mormon religion, that still practices polygamy today. They also practice murder. There were three books written about them, "The Four O'Clock Murders" by Scott Anderson and "Blood Covenant" by Rena Chynoweth (a relative of some of those who were murdered) and "Prophet of Blood: The Untold Story of Ervil Lebaron and the Lambs of God" by Ben Bradlee . There was also a "made for TV" movie about them but I can't remember the name of it! One of my "cousins" is on the FBI's Most Wanted List!!! (Yes, I have a very colorful family history!! I'm just glad that I never met that one particular branch of the tree, though!)

Here's a couple of articles if anyone is interested! :D

If I remember correctly it was the sausages that didn't agree with Vic! :D
