    50! Dang Mike, you are old!

    :p Happy Birthday!
  12. Thanks very much, guys! :)

    Now I am 50. :(

    Wait a minute - AARP discounts! :hyper: :p

    Now, I have to buy a pipe, slowly light it and take a few puffs, lean against the mantle and begin to address the young whipper-snappers: "You know, when I was your age, I didn't listen to anything guys my age said to guys your age." :rollno:

    Thanks again, everyone!

    You're all A #1 in my book.

    Mike ;)

  18. Well, Yamila didn't show up, if that's what you mean. :(

    No card, no call. :bawl:

    It's like she's some high-fashion model or something! :p

    Mike :D
  19. A birthday lunch, an unexpected wake, then an unexpected dinner.

    :confused: You ask?

    OK, here's the breakdown:

    I met my sister & her crew in the city for lunch at noon.

    Why noon? Because the only reservations the restaurant had were at noon when they open or 7pm, which would have been too late for some people.

    So, usually after lunch I would simply take the subway back to Queens, and my sister & her gang would head back to Jersey. Then, my sister tells me that one of the aunts of my brother-in-law died, and that her wake was at a funeral home right near my house, and that we'd all go back to Queens together.

    Now, no one expected me to go to the wake, because my brother-in-law has a huge family, and there are dozens and dozens of cousins, aunts, uncles, et cetera.

    Then, I realize that the woman who died was the mother of one of my brother-in-law's cousins that I happen to know fairly well. So, I go to the wake.

    I walk into the funeral home, and sitting right there is my Doctor, who is also a mutual friend of my brother-in-law's cousin. Small world.

    Then, my Doctor asks me, "Mikey Boy, isn't it your birthday today?" I answer, "yes," and he then says, "Hey, after the wake, I'm taking you out to dinner - no excuses."

    So, there you have: A birthday lunch, an unexpected wake and an unexpected dinner! :)

    Aren't you sorry you asked?!? :p

    Mike :D ;)
