Did I just hear you call 55 old????!!!!!! shocked


** Ancient Chinese saying:

It takes a year to grow crops.

It takes a century to grow a tree.

It takes 50 years to grow a man...


**at least that what the quote on the bathroom stall said it was.....

BTW, I'm only 44 3/4 years old and I still got some growing up to do or so my wife says and she's always right....

I hit 60 in a few days, God willing!

Recently completed Paul Castle's CQC pistol course, and have joined an Elite Special Forces Team called

"Don't pick a fight with an old man. We have nothing to loose, and will just go ahead and kill you."

i agree with this line of thought:

"Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming: ‘Wow – what a Ride’!"
