    What Malcolm?!!! Its only been a mere five days!

    Took me a full seven to realize, “getting accustomed to six decades breathing air” takes alot out of a feller.

    Then again – I ain’t recently had any joints replaced. Too I suppose, I ain’t got Dogfish readily at hand and limit my single-malt intake to Veterans Days.

  3. I’m close to sixty. But not as close as I’d like to be.

    Henry, you are 60 with X years additional experience.

  6. Thanks for your vote of confidence, Robert. But it’s more like XIII years of additional experience.

  7. Now, if I recall my Roman numerals, TBH, your age is 60 X III = 180. Impressive!

  8. HJH,

    Henry, call him “Methuselah”, remembers the first Marathon?

  10. I do remember the first Marathon. Philippides was a good buddy of mine. I was very sad to hear he died of exhaustion after he announced in Athens our victory over the Persians. We could use a warrior like Phil against Persia today.

    16 huh? Same sex marriage, broken families, broken gender ids…the left intends to destroy every building block of successful healthy society and replace with something. The world isn’t exactly flush with successful societies made up of those “somethings”.
