    Made it to 60 yrs old. By hook, by crook and strokes of luck I made it.......even despite being in the emergency unit of the local hospital the day before.

    Had an all day breakfast yesterday, by that I mean we had breakfast for breakfast, for lunch and for tea......and midnight snack. All too soon...like the 60yrs....the day pased and this is all that is left.

    I thank the powers that be I am still alive, got a pulse, breath in my body....a wonderful family and the love of a wonderful lady (my long suffering wife Linda)

    Yesterday Pete? My 65th was on last Sunday. I knew there was a reason we seemed to get along here, both Cappies.

    Happy birthday!!

    Happy birthday Pete!!! I turn 60 in a month and a day. I'm already looking for those age 60 discounts and found 60 or over parking today at one of our parks. :smile:

    I'm just a couple of years behind you, Pete. And remember, 60 is the new 40. Happy Birthday!

    Congratulations. When I hit 60 three years ago, I thought, "How the hell did this happen?"

    But of course, given the alternative, I'm glad it did. And haven't you heard, sixty is the new forty.

    I've been Hemmingway-ing it all my life utterly convinced I won't last a day beyond 35. Here I am at a bewildering 41 addicted to buying cameras and then ignoring them once bought.

    Happy birthday Pete!

    Congratulations Pete - I'm chasing you down but I have five years to make up and I hope you're around long enough that I don't catch you! Keep moving and keep shooting!

    a few years to go to catch me up - I've been "living of the State" for three years

    Nice to get the monthly bank transfer ..... comes in handy, especially with the new Nikon 300mm f4 VR just around the corner!!
