Happy Birthday young man.  

          You're still not quite an 'Grumpy Old Git'.

                        So much to look forward too. :}


Cheers

There's nothing wrong with 40. I hit that one two years ago and I'm still alive!  O0

The saying about "life beginning" apparently originates with Roman Vestal Virgins.  They would go into the job as young girls and work in the temple.  At the age of 40 they would retire on a generous pension and make up for lost time.

So try to think of it in those terms...it's all been quiet and contemplative 'till now  %%

Many Happy Returns Essex,

I have recently celebrated ? my 60th birthday, and can firmly state that nothing changes inside your head as you age,

indeed - "Growing old is inevitable,  however, Growing up is optional "

cheers Sparky

Happy birthday :-))

40...that's young. I have 3 sons, 51, 49 and 46 :((. I'm so old I'm not game to go into a museum for fear they keep me there {-)

I still think I'm young, but my body keeps disagreeing with me <*<
