War is cruelty. There is no use trying to reform it. The crueler it is, the sooner it will be over.

Sixty-Eight, here. But, as to greybeards, as my Granddaddy used to say, "Why tame hair on your face when it grows wild around your ass?

Wow ..... no more curmudgeon corps for this young pup!

Just to keep it interesting, I’ll introduce you to a few of my lovely ladies that I do enjoy when we reminisce about our common birthyear:

Priscilla Presley, Helen Mirren, Carly Simon, Rita Coolidge, Goldie Hawn, Bette Midler, Jaclyn Smith, Barbara Carrera.

And just for you RebBuglar, the guys I jam with when we celebrate that great year:

John Fogerty, Pete Townshend, Bob Marley, Neil Young, Eric Clapton, Rod Stewart, Bruce Cockburn, Van Morrison, Jose Feliciano. And to add that touch of class to the group: Itzhak Perlman

It was a very good year ..... indeed!

54 here... and if that is middle aged guys... we have to make it to 104... I am taking a deep breath and holding it....

Grandma got me AH "Jutland" for my 12th birthday and I kept collecting until I hit 250 games, then when I was laid off after the airline industry collapsed, I sold them for almost double what was paid.
