To hunt and butcher an animal is to recognize that meat is not some abstract form of protein that springs into existence tightly wrapped in cellophane and styrofoam.

It's all down-hill after 40.  Trust me.

Happy B-day.
May I always be the kind of person my dog thinks I am.

That's not true. :nono:
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.

Every father should remember that one day his children will follow his example instead of his advice.

Definitely not true. For myself I took up bike racing at 40. Pushed myself past goal after goal for 10 years. 17 years later, new goals and nothing going downhill yet as I get closer to 60.
Have a great birthday!

You guys can't even give him a little crap for getting old?  Geez.  :)

I'm sure it won't be long before his hair is either gone or has turned grey.......needs reading glasses, easily gets backaches, starts forgetting things.....

damn.....I forgot the other points I was going to make.  :o

Happy Birthday, h2o!  I'd be there if I weren't 320 miles from Smokey Point! 

I myself am staring 40 in the snout here in December.

It's the new 30, doncha guys know?!   :chuckle:  Yeah, that would be fun.  We could crack lots of beverages and reflect on whether or not we are "mature, seasoned hunters".     :o

Oh that?  You are right, grey hair coming and dog gone it if I didn't need reading glasses two months after turning 40.  After my lasic surgery I thought no more glasses.  Doctor crushed my dreams when he said I would need readers right around forty.  I thought no way but he was right.

You also bruise way easier and it takes a lot longer to recover from a fall or tweaking your back.

There's a couple of other things but they have slipped my mind as well.

I think we need another party for those hitting 50 this year.  I will be in December.  This party should be at a place like Perkins, with coffee, egg whites, and whole wheat toast, and a bathroom close buy for the old guys who have to make frequent visits.  Believe me, it only goes downhill after 40.   :'(

I made 50 in July.  I would also support a get together for that.  50 hasn't been gentle to me so it deserves to be recognized.  LOL...
