“To what do attribute your long life?  “To the fact I haven’t died, yet!”

PS – a party was feted in my honor November 16, brought together by my ex-wife(?!).  She contacted friends and relatives and we all met at my favorite pizza place.  Thanks, again, everyone!  While it wasn’t exactly back stage with the Stones, everyone seemed to have a good time.

  1. Happy birthday, my friend. Oh – and re: Brigid … a gentleman would never, ever mention a lady’s age, unless the number “39” is involved. :^) I hope yours is a good one!

  3. Happy Birthday! Hope the next year is even more fun!

    (And yes, I followed Brigid’s suggestion. Hey, the lady has firearms, chocolate, and whiskey. I know when it’s wise to do what I’m told!)

  4. “she’d hurt us”. You are indeed wise.

    Have a wonderful day my dear friend! I have crossants baking and going to check on Tam (I’m not sure if croissants fall into the “feed a cold” thing, but they can’t hurt with the flu).

  5. Happy Birthday GFA, and many more. Provided you remember that Brigid is only 39. My Mother called to wish me Happy Birthday last year. She’s been 29 since I turned 11.
