Forty two years old...


Today is my birthday and I am now forty two... the same age as elvis when he died on the toilet.... Recently I have found myself sunbathing, walking two miles a day, working out and I even got my ear pierced..

Can anyone say mid life crisis?

Mid-Life crisis or not, I don't care. I think it looks hot! Happy Birthday old man.

You are only as old as you want to be!! Some days I want to be 18 and others 74.. So, I just split the difference!!! :):)

Nah I don't think a piercing amounts to a crisis. Or a sign of complete regression, maybe it is at 42 that you finally feel comfortable enough to admit that you have always wanted a piercing and so being 42 and not really giving a flying fuck what your parents may say or children, you did what you wanted, and it felt good.
Happy Birthday.

Happy Birthday. It's very surprising to me that you are only 42, since you write about things that I would love to write about, but don't have the talent with the words.

You write about things that people of my generation love to reminisce about.

Happy Birthday! The earring looks cool, and you look tan, even in the sepia.

Well.. having known you my entire life... it seems that, right now, you're dealing with less of a mid-life crisis and more of a mid-life awakening... It's always been in you.. you've just decided to move forward... by the way, you are looking a bit sphelt in your pic!! Be good old friend.. I'll see you soon!!!

If getting in shape and trying to look good are a crisis, bring it on! :)
