Happy birthday!

I think this also means you get to talk about how you walked uphill both ways in the snow to get to school.

Greg Daniel

Happy Birthday!

And Ditto!

Change is ... well ... change ... and inevitable ... and still the same.

And yes it was better (whatever it was) in my day (whenever that was) and of course I'm right (because I'm old and know stuff).

Nonetheless, as I was telling Mabel over at the Walmarts, none of it stops me from dreaming about the future that never was and waxing nostalgic about the good ol' days that never were either.


Thanks, Mark! But walk up hill both ways in the snow to go to school? That's cushy compared to how we had it! Heck, I had to walk uphill in the snow both ways just to change the channel on the TV.

Ditto to you, too, Greg! Tell Mabel I said hi!

Jeff Baker

"I feel your pain." And I love that one of your tags is "Me Gassing about stuff."


Happy Birthday Steve! The big 5-0! By the way, an old man chasing young secretaries around their desks still is funny...so long as it is Tim Conway playing the old man.

Anne Merino

Wonderful piece, as always, Steve! Hoping your birthday was truly a fabulous day of cake and 50 year old complaints!

Bryan Steelman

Wow, 50 years old. Happy Birthday. Of course, you do realize that 50 is the magic age where some doctor gets to shine a light where the sun don't shine. I had my first colonoscopy at 47, and it may have saved my life.


Thanks for the birthday well-wishes, guys! (Even if one of them did come with an image I didn't need in my morning. Still -- noted, Bryan. I'll tell my doc to warm up his flashlight sometime before 51 rolls around.)
