30, 40, 50, 60 etc

Didn't mind being 41 or even 53 so why does having an 0 on the end of my age pi55 me off? Going to be 60 tomorrow, where the fark did that go, I mean I know I don't remember much after woodstock and missed most of the seventies but WTF :shock: I realise most of you thought I was 70+ already but at this rate I will have to move to Cornwall and ask MrsT to think for me :D I'm 3 years older than my car FFS!

    You're the sharpest cat among the BB crowd (not the best compliment :lol: ) and you're pretty cool for a 60 year old :D

    I think it's safe to say you've still got it, it's just a number

    Does this mean you can moth ball the Isetta and get a bus pass, or is it a donkey voucher in those parts?

    Happy Birthday Old boy , sure you got more go left in ya than most of us :D


    I thought you were having problems with Roy Orbison when I saw the title.

    Didn't have you down as a geriatric roadie T47, Mikey23 yes, but not you :shock:

    Perhaps we could start up a BB retiree's commune, you and Mikey for starters, more of us to follow in future years (if we make it :wink: ).

    I am not retired you cheeky little fecker, when I got to 51 I said censored this and stopped going to work, I am independently wealthy so didn't need the money, but don't tell Vtwonk that or I'll have to buy a fcuckin watch :D

    Feeling much better for all your kind words, thank you.

    Still 59 though:D

    Sounds like retirement to me.

    Enjoy your last few hours of 59 and happy Birthday after that! :P
    None of the above should be taken seriously, and certainly not personally.

    Don't worry mate, in 366 days, you will be over your 0 phobia.

    Say this quick enough and it sounds like an Isetta:

    "Foder Foder Foder Foder Foder Foder Foder Foder Foder Foder Foder Foder Foder Foder Foder Foder"

    Happy birthday to you

    Happy birthday for tomorrow old man. I'm with Stevo and feeling young all of a sudden.
    One of my customers was telling me today that he thought he might get lucky tonight, then he said at his age that meant he got to choose what was on the telly. :P
  • You're as young now as you'll ever be, so don't knock it!
    Is the gorilla tired yet?

    I'm definitely younger than some of these geriatric pervs thankfully.

    Happy Birthday that man!

    I always imagined you as younger too, generally because for me in my job, most people are. :wink:

    Hope you have a good day, but I suppose if you aren't going to work it can't be much else!


    The older I get, the better I was.

  • team47bteam47b Posts: 6,424
    Thanks everyone for all your kind words, off out now to *celebrate, will report back later :D

    *everyday is a celebration but today two things have already happened that don't usually happen, I ate some chocolate biscuits and it absolutely pi55ed down, will the excitement never end! :D

Trust me I'm older than you & can speak from experience, the Os may not get everything this time around but they can bide their time & will just wait till further down the line.Bet that's cheered you up!!!!!

    Cheery old fecker aren't you bet it's that sunny disposition that keeps you going :D

    I already have everything so it's not an issue but I am fitter, stronger, healthier in general terms, more stamina, less fat, more muscle, lower BMI, still have all my hair etc

    If you find you are slowing down - get a better bike :D

  • It's not the better bike I need it's the legs & I must admit I'm having a few mental problems, I don't know who he is but I'm being followed ( every shop window- every mirror) this old bloke is stalking me, when I get hold of him I'll punch his lights out.

    do you ever think why do I have a picture of my dad in the bathroom?

  • certainly do, they say it's a wise child that knows it's father, every time I look in the mirror my father stares back at me ( but I'm not very wise)
