Best wishes to you tafnut! Anyone who claims repeat 200H's as a favorite workout deserves my respect, pity, and a modicum of concern. Keep up the prodigious posting.

Does he still compete? Possibly he has a chance at some new age group records? If so, remember to play nice, walking sticks and zimmers are NOT weapons.

But seriously, happy birthdays to youTaFNuts.

MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!! :roll:

My goal this year is to completely humiliate any competitor of mine that uses a walker, cane or crutches - no mercy!

So are you moving into the 'walkers and canes' division??

Edit: damn, cross-posting! I got this post started but being at work I was interrupted by, you know, work!

Anyone who still competes at age 55 in the jumps or hurdles is either insane (me) or a preternatural genetic freak whose various body parts still work in a verisimilitude of 'athleticism', despite the onset of decrepitude. Fortunately I never was particularly gifted, so there wasn't much to lose. But . . . I have yet to lose to any 80-year olds (although they would ALL kick my butt in any race over 800!).

Happy birthday tafnut. The very disconcerting thing about this is now I will never forget because this is the 25th anniversary of Lennon's death.

:cry: The year I became a teenager, the Beatles came to America. The year I left teenagehood, they split up. The day I turned 30 (as in 'Don't trust anyone over . . .'), Lennon was killed.

And my students wonder why I have Beatles posters up in the classroom.

happy birthday tafnut, a day late I guess. After taking FOUR HOURS ( normal: 30 minutes ) to drive home in a snowstorm from a day of volunteering downtown, no energy to check this board last night.

55 ? You're just a kid.

Yes - I was trying to explain that to my kids, but they were much more interested in having me tell them about what it felt like to be alive when dinosaurs roamed the Earth. One time one actually asked me if I had fought in the First or Second World War. So much for the education provided by THIS school.

Epelle, singing:

Ja, visst ska han leva.

I put that through the Universal Translator and got this:

"Yes, my hen lays
Yes, my hen lays
Yes, my hen lays a hundred eggs
Yes, can you lay eggs?
Yes, can you lay eggs?
Yes, can you lay a hundred eggs like my hen?

Great is the foolhardy tafnut. "


Wow - I simply don't know how to respond, EPelle! :o

You have GOT to be kidding me!

EPelle sings (in English):

Yes, may he live,
Yes, may he live,
Yes, may he live till he:s a hundred years old.
Of course, he will live,
Of course, he will live,
Of course, he will live till he:s a hundred years old.


Happy Birthday.

I've just calculated that if Pat makes it to 100yo, and keeps up his present rate of posting, he'll make 263,410 posts before leaving this mortal coil. I didn't, however, factor in an increase in posting when he retires!

By then we'll have telepathic posting, no keyboard action required, and the increase will be staggering. He'll be able to post from the marshalling area at the Senior Olympics, while standing in line at the Medicare office, while watching reruns of "The Lawrence Welk Show," and even on the potty while trying to make good on the prune juice he drank that morning. The problem will be filtering the non-track and field messages once senility sets in: "Damn.......pissed my pants again!"

Happy Birthday, Tafnut!

Don't forget that since he will be senile, it will be easy to keep the post count up because he will be repeating himself constantly.
