Wow.  Today I am 42.  An 80 year old friend of mine told me that these will be the best years of my life.  She said the 60s are great!   So, I am not going to get wrapped up in "Wow, I'm old."  I am going to embrace my coming years and enjoy life the best I can.  I have a hard time doing that.

My new (used) camera arrived today - a Canon 40D.  Perfect present!  I can't wait to get shooting.
  • Listening to: Interpol
  • Reading: Canon 40D
  • Watching: My computer
  • Playing: With the keyboard
  • Eating: Power Bar
  • Drinking: Coke Zero

Happy Birthday!

I am 46. I agree - the fourties are great and I look forward to the years to come.

Have a Happy Day!

I'm not too far behind you, either. I don't miss the melodrama of youth AT ALL!

Speaking of old Charlton, I keep getting calls (which I don't answer) from a number that my caller id lists as "NRA." Mr. Heston, is that you?

Anyway, great to hear that you plan to make the most of these years. I hate how society tries to make us feel that we have to look and act like a 20-year-old our whole lives. Hair dye and botox and eyelash re-growers, oh my!

Happy Birthday! :cake: My birthday is also today but I'm 56. So far your friend has been correct as far as I'm concerned. The 40's were great for me and the 50's have been good too. :)

Thanks! Happy Birthday to you as well! I personally think those of us who were born on this date are extra special. :)
