I can now be a Grumpy Old Fart

"Now?" I hear you mutter. Don't think I didn't hear that ...

I have a big post that - for once - I quite like. Usually I'm ambivalent, but you seem to like them. Since I like this, I expect you'll like it less (Murphy's Law). But it's a beautiful Saturday afternoon, and Sitemeter tells me that it's beautiful where you are, and so I'll post it Monday.

Besides, it's by birthday, so I actually am a grumpy old fart, in a very real and legally binding sense. So I'm heading off with Clan Borepatch to enjoy the day. But I'd like to wish many happy returns of the day to all y'all, anyway!

Happy Birthday - and may there be many, many more... if only to really piss off your naysayers!

Happy Birthday! The grumpy part is optional while the other is a matter of perspective (or distance) - my dad still calls me a kid!

Happy Birthday Grumpy Old Fart....by the way, we knew you were one all along, but were trying to be nice and not get you all worked up in a huff...lol

I hoped you checked the smoke detectors and your fire extinguisher before lighting all those candles.

Happy Birthday. You're not that old, and no where near as grumpy as I am.

Birthday wishes your way, good sir.

Grumpy? Hell, at least you haven't reached the curmudgeon stage.

That's where the money is.

Happy birthday BP. I'd tease you about your age but I'm pretty sure I'm older than you so I'll just shut up now.
