Thanks very much. I don't feel any different other than being an "official old fart" because it's my 65th. Which brings to mind an anecdote on aging which happened to me in Scotland.

I took a boat to a castle on an island in a lake, Loch Leven (Castle/Lake). After getting out I climbed the hill to the entrance to pay for my entry. Since their age for retireees (OAPs..Old Age Pensioners) was, I think, 60 I asked "Do you have an OAP price?

"Ach, he exclaimed, and in a thick scottish brogue said: "If yew ken a make it up that hill...you'rrrrre not eligible!"

Thank you all. What a wonderful bunch of folks you all are.

Hey Rich...

Isn't that the same theory with witches or something a couple of centuries ago. They would submerge them under water for 5 to 10 minutes (or for what ever time), and if they lived they were guilty but if they died, they were innocent.... I wonder what bright spark thought that one up... So your damned if you do and damned if you don't, its a no win situation...LOL...

But at least you made it up the hill.... Got to make you feel good...:smile:
