Birthday 166
« on: December 15, 2015, 06:24:31 PM »


Upcoming Birthdays: stopthemachine (37), oldphonelover (53), Buzby (44), Devansphones (166)

Devansphones has not posted since 2012 so I don't think he will make his 166 Birthday this month. This is very sad....Kidold....but not that old

Is Devansphones  from Russia?  I'm asking because people that old (166) tend to be from Russia.

That's pretty funny, Doug!

That would be interesting to enter your birthday as, say, December 15th, 2019. That way, it would show up as your -4 year-old birthday!

That's funny, Doug. Wait until you get really old and find it is easier to come up with a list that which does not hurt than to list that which does. It may have been all of the heavy lifting I had to do when we created dirt . . .  ::)

I'm only 30 and I suffered a slipped disc a few weeks back, feeling better now (still some "reminders" there now and then when I move wrong), but back then, ouchie... :o

Thank goodness for the NHS and it's free online doctor stuff... ;D

My 5 year old daughter has been telling everyone that it's my 101st birthday today, and will not be convinced otherwise.

My sister, when she was in Kindergarten, told her teacher that my mom was 83 (instead of her real age then, 38)!

Maybe Davensphones is only 100 and Doug is having trouble reading his own handwriting!

That reminds me of a story someone told me. It was a long time ago, so the details are fuzzy.

He'd been listening to the radio - one of these request shows - when the DJ read out one of the letters. "Could you please with my Gran a Happy Birthday and get well soon, as she was one-hundred-and-eleven recently"

"Well, well, well!", said the DJ, "I would be happy to do that for a woman reaching such an amazing age!"

He played the requested record, and his next announcement was an apology.

"I'm sorry, ladies and gentlemen, I seemed to have misread the last request. The lady who the dedication was for was 'ILL' recently, and not 111".

I see you are feeling very slightly better now Doug. You are only 162 rather than 165. Still a ways to go though..... (See top line of screen capture below)

Am I the only west coaster on here....I feel so lonely (see bottom line of screen capture below)
