    Ugh...we were out of state this year for a wedding, and I completely forgot. :eek: Happy belated birthday, Cees, and congratulations on the grandchild!

    Thanks, David! A wedding is an excellent reason to forget birthdays (except, of course, those of the radiantly-looking-forward-to-it children). Cees

    Ha, ha, ha, Gregg.
    Unfortunately we only discussed that theory very shortly and superficially.
    (But did you know there was an American trial a few years ago, aimed in another direction - preventing elderly people to break their hip - that indirectly but strongly supports my theory?)
    Yes, we too loved the diner hours and our conversations! Glad to see you had a safe journey back home!
    Cees

    Happy birthday, Cees! I have fond memories as your table mate at the Home Theater Cruise back in '02 (has it really been that long?). I hope you're having a wonderful day today!

    Thanks again, Mike...not sure you could ever get tired of those two. I'll leave it up to you to decide which two I mean, but I suppose the answer is correct regardless. ;)

    Wow, my turn to be a bit late to the party (although only by a few hours).


    Happy Birthday David!
    Your child (gender still unspecified until now :) ) is two years now, isn't it?

    Zen, great to see a psot of you once more!
    (Here and there, I still occasionally cite the Corleone haiku you once posted - that was you wasn't it?)

    Roy, yes it must have been 2002 (time flies like a banana, indeed). It was my first cruise: since then I went at least once every year. I started to advise friends to take a cruise at least once, to find out if they like it!
    (Here's a pic made last september during our last cruise, on my wife's mobile phone: )

    Sumner, I just found out that I missed two of your PM's following our previous conversation! (Damned new system! I will reply now a.s.a.p.) You're not old, but apparently I am.

    Well, Mike, my pics aren't as big as those two you posted (to continue on David's joke).

    Gregg, as thread-starter (and when you read this): see you in a couple of weeks!


    I myself had a fine birthday. This was the first of my birthday parties attended (for both of us) by my granddaughter Benthe, now just over 1 years old. "Grandpa" (Dutch: Opa) is one of the words she clearly says. :)

    Thanks, everyone! Mike, special thanks for the gifts. One never gets too old to appreciate eye-candy... uhm true beauty, I mean.

    He turned three last month, actually, and is still an only child. We'll see if we can remedy that before I get too old. ;) Glad to see you are still doing well!

    David, I see the error in my thinking now (juggling with '11 and '12 against '13 and '14).Don't worry. Charlie Chaplin was in his eighties when he got Geraldine. Sure you can! :)

    Thank you, John and Aaron!

    Happy birthday, Cees!


    On time for the second year in a row. My memory seems to be improving with age.

    Ha, ha, thanks, Dave!


    I invariably have an hesitation to bump this thread, because it has my name in the title.

    So, you know what? I'm going to (mis-)use my powers to change the name of this thread and simply add yours too!


    Happy Birthday Dave!!

    I appreciate that, Cees, and thanks for the birthday wishes. Would it also be an abuse of power for Mike to post the usual birthday pictures now that he is a moderator? ;)
