    Happy Anniversary to me!!

    Yep, tomorrow June 9th, I get to once again celebrate my life-changing accident of 1972. Hard to beleive that 33 years ago I took that fateful dive at the farm lake and am still alive and well to work on 34.

    My dive left me an incomplete C5-6, and the doctors told me I could expect to live to 40! HA, I showed them....49 and tickin'!

    Just join the ranks of Chris Skinner and now the cigar-man Fuentes and Shaun, and call me GRAMPS!

          Acknowledge it. Don't celebrate it. You celebrate good things.....

            Why not? It's over, it's done, it's who I am, and I'm living and loving life. When you get to be an old fart like me, you'll appreciate everything you have!

              Lindy, Festus is doing fine, thanks for asking.[img]/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif[/img] He hobbled around pretty badly for a week or so and then by 2 weeks was running and jumping like nothing ever happened!

                Oh that is great news Deadeye.
                I wanted to ask sooner, but was afraid since you didn't say anything..you know.
                Tell him he'll be gettin' those pesky groundhogs soon.

                      You guys in your 30's and 40's aren't old. I am in my 60's getting closer to 70 and I am still young at heart. In fact my wife says I am getting down right childish. [img]/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif[/img]

                      Remember the words of that great American philosopher, Larry The Cable Guy, "Even an old dog can still bury a bone, if you get my drift."

                        That reminds of something a 68 year old employee of mine told me one time. I was managing 40+ para-transit drivers at the time, and this really cute lady wearing a short jean skirt came in to pay a clients transportation bill. She really was a looker and I noticed that old Russell was checking her out.

                        When she left, I jokingly said something to Russell "why are you looking at her, you can't handle that". Whereupon he responded, and I quote, "I may be too old to cut the mustard, but I can still lick the jar" [img]/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

                        Please forgivd me ladies for my crudeness but it was one of the funniest lines I ever heard!

                        And Spadfan, I had no idea you were an old-timer! You go man!!!
