Talking Happy Birthday, Bob!




Even though your Birthday isn't until tomorrow, (Monday, September 27th) I thought I'd start a thread early, to give members a chance to wish you a happy day...






and beyond...










I couldn't remember how old you were turning, or if you told me not to tell anyone, but don't worry, you know I'll be totally discreet...











To lesson the blow, I'll just say...




Happy 20th Anniversary of your 30th Birthday!




Would it sound better if I said you were 'half a century' old, or 'five decades'??







Here are some cheering quotes & jokes to ponder on your special day...



1) "You are not 50, just $49.95, plus tax"

2) "Looking 50 is great...if you're sixty"!!!

3) Q)What kind of underpants does a 50-year-old wear? A) Well, Depends, I guess!

4) Q) What is the most common remark made by 50 year-olds when they enter antique stores? A) "I remember these"

5) "You know you are over hill when you and your teeth don't sleep together"!!!

6) "Fifty isn't old if you're a tree. Unfortunately though, you're not a tree"!

7) "There are numerous advantages in being 50...just ask any 80-year-old"!

8) "Fifty isn't the end of the world, but you can see it from there"!

9) "You are only young once, but you can stay immature indefinitely"

10) Q) Why should 50 & 50+ year-old-people use valet parking? A) Valets don't forget where they park your car!











"First you forget names,
then you forget faces,
then you forget to pull your zipper up,
then you forget to pull your zipper down"





Time to




Of course, it's all in good fun Bob...the truth is you look terrific for 50 and could easily pass for someone in their 30's!



Hope you have a fabulous day.











Your friend always,



: )

What can I say, pal... Enjoy the round anniversary of your 30th birthday.

And here's some 50 candles for you. Yes, there are 50 of them. Have a nice B-day.






Sheesh, it doesn't say anything about your b-day on the main page... Holly?

My Birthday, Jack?




It's in late Winter, two days after Valentine's Day, and I'll be turning 29...




again!





By the way Bob, here's some flowers from my garden for your birthday...






Of course I'm sure on my birthday, Bob will get me back with the same kind of teasing he's come to expect from me, no doubt.



Anyway Bob...






Let us know how your day goes...

NOOOO. I meant it doesn't say anything about Bob today, and so I asked: "Holly?" You started the thread.

Hi Bob.

Here is a little story about a Gros Michel pup that I gave up on because the center rotted.

After potting and tending to the pup for several weeks I decided to cut a little off the top to help a new cigar leaf emerge. But after cutting it I found the center was black, so I cut and cut until it was about 10 inches from the soil line. At that point I gave up and set the pup in an out of the way spot to die and finish rotting. For some reason yesterday I decided to check it, kind of how you check the fridge for a beer when you know there are none there. I gave it a tug thinking it would pull straight out of the soil as a lifeless rotting mass of goo, but strangely it was stuck firm in the potting soil. So I grabbed a single edge blade and started chopping at it again. I found more rot in the middle, until I got to about 2 inches above the soil line. It was there I saw some green surrounded by brown!

As of this evening it has pushed out about a half inch of new growth.

Happy Birthday.

The end.

Sherry, it figures you'd be the one to post this... and a day early even!!!!
( and you got your "Depends" comment in as usual! ... for those of you who don't know these are adult diapers sold in the USA)

Oh please, spare us all, Birthday Boy!



The reason why Bob knows exactly what "DEPENDS" are, and that they are adult diapers, is because here he was unashamedly posing in a pair of them recently...











Now Bob, don't try to lie and tell us it's not you! You can clearly see by the hair, that it is!







Of course what would a birthday be without some teasing & humor?...




No fun!













Alright, I know I've said it a thousand times but...









Hope it was a good one for ya...
