Whoop! 50 is my next birthday too. I haven't trust myself for years. Especially not with that damned turtle in my carryon.

You're sooo old Jan. :wink:

I've got a friend named Lorraine who is almost a year older than me. A few years back she invited me along to her degree ceremony (MA) and one of her friends asked if I was her dad. :evil:

I prefer the term 'mature' - like a fine wine (that's fussy who drinks it :P )

Yours sincerely

I was told to grow up, but couldn't get the qualifications.


LOL my mom has been telling me all my life that I "Just don't have ANY common sense" I missed the "testing phase" of secular school by being in catholic school until third grade so they just treated me like a 'tard until 6th grade testing, wow what a suprise to me to see Dad's face when the guidance counselor told him my I.Q. he had been running along with my mom telling him I was a lost cause... LOL

Nevah grow up. That is one of my rules.
Aha! So, Bob's yer uncle... very clever.
