life begins at 55, you young squirt
  Mon. 1/12/09 9:15am owen:

  Mon. 1/12/09 9:15am Bad Ronald:

Funny we went from death to birth at the stroke of 9...
  Mon. 1/12/09 9:17am detroitdave:

Right BR....but this birth looks like it may have happened a while ago
  Mon. 1/12/09 9:21am detroitdave:

Ben...don't get nuerotic on us, your not that old and quit staring at these pics!
  Mon. 1/12/09 9:25am bw:

  Mon. 1/12/09 9:31am bw:

you too Jason - this is our future
  Mon. 1/12/09 9:40am still b/p:

Here, from Guru Twain, and pleading comment-space dispensation for extra length, is your birthday affirmation to chant for the day:
"'Whoo-oop! I'm the old original iron-jawed, brass-mounted, copper-bellied corpse-maker from the wilds of Arkansaw!--Look at me! I'm the man they call Sudden Death and General Desolation! Sired by a hurricane, dam'd by an earthquake, half-brother to the cholera, nearly related to the small-pox on the mother's side! Look at me! I take nineteen alligators and a bar'l of whiskey for breakfast when I'm in robust health, and a bushel of rattlesnakes and a dead body when I'm ailing! I split the everlasting rocks with my glance, and I squench the thunder when I speak! Whoo-oop! Stand back and give me room according to my strength! Blood's my natural drink, and the wails of the dying is music to my ear! Cast your eye on me, gentlemen!--and lay low and hold your breath, for I'm bout to turn myself loose!'
  Mon. 1/12/09 9:45am bw:

it looks like Haruki Murakami and Rob Zombie share the same birthday too - that makes up for Limbaugh
  Mon. 1/12/09 9:48am annie:

  Mon. 1/12/09 9:48am TD:

Becoming a vintage. ye~
  Mon. 1/12/09 10:13am detroitdave:

Age is a mental thing at your stage of the race. Ignore it and carry on!
  Mon. 1/12/09 10:13am annie:

, truely, it just gets better; you seem to let go of fear and embrace jollity and simplicity. well, at least i have... you feel codgeriness is a gift and hone your skills accordingly.. it's fun!
  Mon. 1/12/09 10:24am bw:

  Mon. 1/12/09 10:36am Manny:

Made in USA finally available in the US? The rights were never bought for the novel it was based on (The Jugger written by Donald Westlake, nee Richard Stark), however Mr. Westlake just recently passed away. Hmmm....
  Mon. 1/12/09 10:38am gerardo:

"Cumpleaños Feliz..."

Greetings from Chile, Benjamin ;)
  Mon. 1/12/09 10:38am Ike:

Eight commas in a row, Annie? Don't turn into Annabelle/Cherie! Heh.

Happy anniversary of belly button creation!
  Mon. 1/12/09 10:41am Carmichael:

  Mon. 1/12/09 10:48am cb:

Happy birthday Benjamen My Frenjamen. You're not old yet, but you're getting close. Enjoy the rest of your adolescence before you get really old like me!
  Mon. 1/12/09 10:52am Lou:

Go Red Sox
  Mon. 1/12/09 10:53am Moose:

play it right!
  Mon. 1/12/09 10:53am MONTREAL:

  Mon. 1/12/09 10:54am Carmichael:

Nothing says happy birthday like a burro ride.
  Mon. 1/12/09 10:55am cb:

bw< i wish that you get a burro ride for your bd.
  Mon. 1/12/09 10:58am Ike:

Yes, that burro ride photo is much more pleasant and inviting than the others. We wish a burro ride for you with a burrito, but no burrs.

Annie, I was talking about this: ",,,,,,,,". Commas. Not comments. I wonder where that bizarre grammatical phenomenon originates.
  Mon. 1/12/09 10:58am cb:

What's the big deal? It's just an old dude sleeping with his cat. Nothing strange or lecherous about that is there?
  Mon. 1/12/09 11:00am dc pat:

aaaahhhh thee headcoatees....

Happy b-day bw
  Mon. 1/12/09 11:01am annie:

aaah, ike, it's mostly to do with typing without my glasses. it was meant to be this.................
  Mon. 1/12/09 11:03am MONTREAL:

fyi. also excellent at 33 is heavenly space manatee
  Mon. 1/12/09 11:03am annie:

i think a sign of old age is actually opening up the AARP envelope and reading it. i just toss mine. as long as i can cut wood, i do not want an AARP card.
  Mon. 1/12/09 11:07am kej:

  Mon. 1/12/09 11:16am Carmichael:

This music is making me do the Watusi.
  Mon. 1/12/09 11:17am still b/p:

The AARPies sure want me, issuing their standard Golden Years shower of mailings as I hit the half c. But fresh 411 on their mercenary games cancels the appeal of any ride on that Gray Bait and Gravy train.
  Mon. 1/12/09 11:17am bw:

wow - I didnt plan this image to go with this song too!
  Mon. 1/12/09 11:19am dc pat:

jeezus, this song is getting me all excited...
  Mon. 1/12/09 11:20am Carmichael:

Coincidentally, I scanned through the channels last night and stopped to watch a piece of "Queer as Folk". They too were talking about being old and unattractive to the other dashing young studs.

And now this picture ....
  Mon. 1/12/09 11:38am Cecile:

Carm, I always watch that at 3:00 a.m. when I have insomnia. The PSAs as dialog and weak attempts at humor put me to sleep.

I liked the British version better.
  Mon. 1/12/09 11:39am old guy:

I am an old man and I recently found that some young people desire old men. So there is hope for you Ben
  Mon. 1/12/09 11:41am Bad Ronald:

Like Anna Nicole Smith...
  Mon. 1/12/09 11:44am Carmichael:


Cash in the Attic always works for me.
  Mon. 1/12/09 11:44am old man:

  Mon. 1/12/09 11:45am old man:

  Mon. 1/12/09 11:45am Cecile:

  Mon. 1/12/09 11:48am old man:

  Mon. 1/12/09 11:50am Carmichael:

  Mon. 1/12/09 11:51am annie:

  Mon. 1/12/09 11:52am old man:

  Mon. 1/12/09 11:52am Mark Harris:

True love comes in many forms...
