51 *

* Is it just me, or has the passage of time actually accelerated since I was a youngster? Is our planet falling through a singularity, like on "Star Trek"? Can I blame the Romulans for this?

(I just wanted to say "Romulans"...that movie kicked ass! And we saw it at the Imax!)

All the best...from one old fart to another.

My 52 is coming up in 10 weeks...

Happy belated birthday. You know what they say...a belated birthday is better than none at all, right?

Happy Birthday. I too am 51 for another 5 months but the years do seem to have gone quicker recently. This downhill acceleration is not being taken well by my body. It may even be time to start exercising and dieting again.

I thought today was your BurpDay. This changes everything. And nothing.

Seems just yesterday we went off to watch the submarine races...all too soon, however, we'll be in the walker races.

Have the HAPPIEST of birthday's!!!!!


PS. I've never met you, but you don't look a day over 35.....

Congratulations, Bob. Keep the flags flying, but remember that the first half-century is the easiest. You're now into the long slog.

I meant to add a kudos for finding a cake decorator who could spell Connecticut and make it fit correctly. The memory is the second thing to go.

I forget...what's the first thing to go?

Two points:

1) CT Bob has full use of Photoshop;

2) King Tut is 3,500...and he's better preserved...

Jesus! If I didn't feel old before...

Really, thanks all for the nice wishes. I had a really great birthday, and a fun time tonight partying with friends.

I'll probably post a goofy photo or two sometime tomorrow after I sober up. If, that is...

Oh, and just because I'm 51 now, that doesn't mean I can't grow a teenage-style zit right in the middle of my frickin' face! And I've been exfoliating like a mo-fo lately...

Acceleration of time is just a state of mind, and partying is a good antidote...

Happy Birthday!

Kate said...

Hey Bob, Had I known it was your birthday I would have wished said something..We should have sung to you...:)

Looks like you had a great time...may you have a blessed year...

CT Bob said...

Thanks Kate! Good to see you last night!

Belated birthday wishes from Cairo. That cake looks delicious!

CT Bob said...

Thanks VBB!

In the interest of full disclosure, it was a photo of last year's cake; this year's is in the first photo from the party, the one with me with the balloon head.
