You're too young to play with real tools. :p

Send me tools!

Ok.....when your doorbell rings expect to see a couple of clean cut young men wearing white shirts and black pants carrying bibles.....

Happy BIG 4-OH! you old fossil.

Now I won't promise you any tools, but if you'll PM me with your personal banking info, (don't forget those pesky PIN numbers), and I can assure you the check will be in the mail.:D

I'll hit fiddyone in a few weeks.

BTW, now that you're over 40, you'll find three inescapable facts that are bourne to the +40 year-old male:

1. It's not the 5 gallon reservoir it once was.
2. It's the firehose it once was.
3. The on/off valve is no longer as positive-acting as it once was.

And that's the stuff you can look forward to.

At 40, you are one day closer to 60 than you are to 20!!

09-17-2010, 06:37 PM
Happy B-day.
I'll hit the big 4-o in March. :(

09-17-2010, 06:54 PM
Thanks all.. Pleasure to read all the smart alec retorts!!...

09-17-2010, 07:55 PM
Congrats... I'm older than that and what puzzles me is, I seem to be on the downhill side and I surely don't remember getting to the top

Welcome to the ol' farts club. :eek:

Happy BD. :D

09-17-2010, 08:29 PM
Here ya go. I sent this last week, you should have it by now unless it got lost in the mail.


You are still a youngster but the hill beckons.

Happy birthday, but read the fine print -the warranty runs out at forty. the good news is that some spare parts may be available until 60-70 :-)

Send me tools!

Yer just a kid! I'm days away from 65. Send the tools to me, first. You'll get them back soon enough :)

Happy B-day :) Now starts the downhill slide on the banister lined with razor blades ending in the giant pool of iodine :eek:


09-18-2010, 12:15 AM
Too funny. HAppy B-day!

09-18-2010, 12:37 AM
I hope you remembered to renew your plates and licensed. Or you'll be giving the State an extra 25 bucks as a fine. The only reason I mention it as memory is the first thing to go... least I think that the first thing to go. :(

Happy (one day late) birthday Cuemaker,
40 is a really a great age to be, generally, 40 offers good health to most, lots learned from the years past, and Lord willing, lots to look a head too!

Pretty soon, you can't trust that your farts are dry anymore ;) ......

09-18-2010, 11:52 AM
Wish I was 40 again. Back then I weighed 160 and everything was still hard. Biceps, Pecs, Abs, ......

09-18-2010, 02:52 PM
Hey, 40 is a great age, I remember it fondly 12 years ago.

Things go a little bit slower when you hit 50, and ya get a little bit tired a little bit more easily. But the spirit is still there!

Happy Birthday!

Happy B'day, CM.

Life begins at forty.

For me, and I'm over half that again, life begins every time I get a major new tool.

Right now, life has begun again for me in the shape of a welder. In that I'm going to need half a lifetime to work out how to use it.

So just count how many tools you haven't got yet, and that's how many lives you've got to come.

Happy Birthday Cuemaker.

I would have done this yesterday ON your birthday but I was busy celebrating MY own birthday.

I have a little over a dozen years on you.

You are probably already aware that you have the distinction of being born on constitution day, a not very widely celebrated day.

Hope you had a good one too.


09-18-2010, 06:21 PM
Your forty,big deal,make it to 90 and we'll be impressed:D
