Happy 40th man!! 8)
Enjoy the true midlife!

Funny how a lot of us here are right about that age. Only 5 months to go for myself. Cannot wait as I have a guys limo night out planned... ALL kinds of fun we will have, oh yes we will. :twisted:

Reg, both good and bad for me personally, the last year has really felt like a midpoint in life. More of a period to reflect and recalculate moving forward hopefully with hindsight in tow.


No kidding... As I'm typing this, the song 'midlife crisis' by Faith No More is on XM. :shock:

I had no issues hitting 35, or 37...I was in good health, I was active in sports, I still had hair covering my head...but once I hit 38, that was an unavoidable, impossible-to-ignore fact that 40 was no longer a distant point on the horizon, it was coming right at me. In my youth I always regarded 40 as being "old".

Now I'm 5 years north of that benchmark of oldness. The hair is pretty much doing the UFO crop ring so I just shave it off. Fortunately my parents gave me good genes so I still have a young face with almost no wrinkles, and I'm still healthy & active in sports. I don't like being 45 because now if I look at the pretty young thangs, I'm considered a dirty ol' man. :?

But, at least I can still play with toy cars. :lol:

Thanks guys... 40 is just a number to me.

I've got my health, a great job, and a wonderful wife. Life is good. Plus, I'm at the maturity level of a 16 year old. I still laugh at fart jokes. :)

But you quit smoking, I think? That's a major accomplishment.
