Taking it easy for my birthday weekend.

My birthday is, in fact, tomorrow. There was to be a party at a clubhouse with cake and beer and people ribbing me about becoming fifty, but then all of… :waving: …this happened and we’re back down to cake. This isn’t a whine or anything, because I wrote all of that without coughing once and that’s something that far too many people can’t manage right now. “At least I have my health” isn’t just a commonplace sentiment at the moment; it’s a heartfelt sigh of relief.

So I’m just gonna hang loose this weekend. Seems smart.

    Happy Birthday, Mr. Lane.
    Having passed that particular milestone a year or two (or more) ago .. I can tell you that 50something is .. underrated.
    Old enough to not get caught in most scams. Well off enough to have some choices for vacations.
    Within sight of the kids being independent and your weekends being more *yours* again.
    Enough time with Mrs. Lane that idiosyncrasies are taken .. if not in stride, then at least in well-worn grumbles.
    Happy Birthday, and enjoy your 50s, Moe. They’re going to be rather good.

    Back in the old days, we used to get experience points for birthdays, but now we just get cake. May your lungs continue to function, sir, for many years to come.

    May you have a happy one, and many more.

    Good health is always a good thing. I hope all your future birthdays are healthy ones. And don’t worry about the 50 angle. I’m over 60 myself and I’ll tell you right now that being old is a lot better than the alternative! ^_~
