Congratulations! Looking back, when I reached your age, my brain obtained maximum effectiveness. It has been a slow downward spiral since then. Heard that was typical.

Yo, Mark

Regarding... Old NY Saying:

In most instances - Never Cop to Anything!

Good advise, especially about age and effects.

Dear Mark... Our 35th birthday is such a special milestone. It's the day you officially (not to be confused with legally) become a full fledged grownup! You proudly shared it with us, and instead of congratulating you and wishing you many many more birthdays, every old crock on the forum (me included) began warning you to pick out your nursing home and stock up on Depends while you still can, because the end is nearer than you realize!

So belatedly and with sincere apologies, HAPPY 35TH BIRTHDAY! And many MANY more.

We also kinda let another bit of your news slip through the cracks--a baby is on the way! If you share that news with us when he or she arrives, I promise we won't turn THAT into a "perils of parenthood" symposium!

I wore a shirt from a collegiate club I belonged to in to work the other day. When I got in, I saw one of the new guys. On a whim I asked the year he was born. Yup, one year before the date on my shirt.

I thought it was sad because they are so young. They thought it was sad because it was such a comentary on my wardrobe.
