HAPPY (birthday to me) NEW YEAR!!!


New year, new start...and (for me) a new birthday.

So now I'm seven squared.
(You do the arithmetic)

Hopefully it's a good year for everyone.


I'll drink to that!!!

Hey, hey, hey! Happy B-day!
(I guess that your folks weren't too happy about missing their income tax deduction for the prior year. Then again, look at the joy you brought them for the coming year!)

(Can't help noticing that Rolling Rock sign in the background. It's the beer that made Latrobe, PA famous-- well, besides Arnie Palmer, Mr. Rogers, and the Steelers for their training camp.)

Happy Birthday, young fella!
Looks almost like a Captain Morgan pose, there.
Here's hoping 2007 is a good year for us all!

Happy birthday! You finally caught up to me. You look younger, though!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DEAR FRIEND! I am just recovering from fainting at seeing my first picture of you in something OTHER than "camo." :-) Have a wonderful birthday and New Year!!

The only thing missing is you doing a major burnout on your bike.

Happy Birfday!

Hope it was a barn burner!

JR:
And just a year ago I was only four...dozen!

Marsha:
You're making me blush.

Hawkeye®:
Happy New Year to you, too!

Nightwalker:
I'm older than a lot of folx.

3-3, huh? Together we add up to 4-4, then.

mig:
Happy New Year! I'm lucky that I get to respond to Happy Birthday with something else.

rusty:
Thanks!
[See above]

onlineanalyst:
It was their fault I wasn't conceived sooner, so they're to blame for the income tax thing as well.

Rolling Rock; PA beer sign in PA bar.
[Go figure, eh? :-)]

Beerme:
Young fella, huh? Heh, I'm none too far behind ya!

Nylecoj:
Thank you, too.

UpNorthLurkin:
I'm younger than some, for sure. Happy 2007!!!

Barb:
21 is how old I act sometimes.
[If that much!]

benning:
I may not look it, but at times, I feel every day of it.

JannyMae:
I caught up to you? How do I stop, now?!

'da Bunny:
I really don't much care for most pictures of myself, but I just have to learn to accept that it's how I actually look. Why else do you think I wear camo all the time?

darth_meister:
The week before my birthday I rode the Harley from North Carolina to Florida and back. I transported it there in my van, in the event that it might snow farther North upon my return. It didn't, but once a Boy Scout, always a Boy Scout.

Cassandra:
Handsome?! Now you've really made me blush!!!
[OK, not really]

As for it being a "barn burner", I celebrated with hundreds of people when it became my birthday. People from all over celebrate my birthday, which is as it should be.
[Hee, hee!]

cave_nate:
That's the place, all right. See you there soon...

How cool that there's a HUGE party every year on your birthday! Hope it was great.

I, too, am surprised at the lack of camo. Perhaps you are wearing some that is unseen?

Hope 2007 is a GREAT year for you, Jack!

Me, I'm holding at 39. (I feel it's right, therefore it is: New math)

Happy Birthday Jack!
BTW....where did you get that picture of Brad Pitt to put on your blog?

Marge, re: any "unseen" camo...you're talking about his socks, right?

My post was deleted...but not by the author [as stated]. Guess someone didn't like my mention of nearly a half century...or sumthin. It could be worse; my brother made it to the three quarter century mark last September.

MargeinMI:
The party I attended was pretty good, but the dance floor was a bit too crowded for me; I did one slow dance with my girl, and even then got jostled a few times.

As for the lack of camo, it happens sometimes.
(Although not often)

Holding at 39...like Jack Benny?

Maggie:
Thanks. Brad who?!

'da Bunny:
Actually, I do have some camouflage boxer shorts.
(A friend got 'em for me, presumably as a joke)

Kajun:
All I know is what it said when I got 'round to checking; "comment deleted by author". I did delete that, though. Nearly a half century I am, and will express it as such when it occurs. I'm really somewhat amazed that I've lasted this long...

Happy Birthday and Happy New Year! You are the best friend I made in this year. Thanks for all of your essay editing efforts to me and help me get into Yale B School. You should receive half of my degree. :) Hei, cann't you find a new photo for this year?

Happy New Year to you, too! I'm just glad that all of my essay editing efforts paid off for you...

Camojack, I turned 7 squared in July of last year...which means I'll be that awful half-century thing this coming birthday.

Then I'll have to wait another six months for you to catch me again!

JannyMae:
Well, getting older definitely beats the alternative...or as I like to say, "every day above ground is a good one".

Of course, in my case, some days underground are pretty good too...

Ah, worked this time, happy birthday, 2 years younger than me. There is hope for you yet!

How've you been, neighbor?
