Birth days, dog days

So this card is how the dear wife honors my 63 years on earth?  And it gets worse…


Like how excited I got because my daughter’s beloved new dog George has eyebrows that look sort of like mine!  Growing old is…what?…an adventure?…at least worth a day off.

    The resemblance is striking. Perhaps you should grow a mustache?

    Happy Birthday Ben growing old is much better than the alternative. Cheers! You do a great job and I for one look forward to reading up your posts!
    We are currently in the middle of a total re-fitting with all new N2k Simrad, NSE and IS20s…AP, AIS, HD radar, Airmar PB200, CS5400 etc…in part due to our reading your reviews and our own in-depth research. Will keep the group posted as this gets installed.

    Ben,
    On my last birthday I only got one birthday card since all the people I know either died off or lost most of their memory. Now, just look at all the cards, notes and best wishes you have here. You’re doing great. Happy Birthday! And, yes, the dog looks just like you.

    Hope it was a good one! Great sense of humor 🙂 Keep up the great reviews.

    Happy Birthday. 63? The older you are the more wisdom you have to impart on others, and I sure hope some more rubs off on me.
    Best,
    Dan

    63 = 21 for the third time around. Take the fourth lap a little slower, because a fifth is a real possibility, and by then marine electronics may be an implant! “Is your Dentist NMEA certified?”

    Keep and truckin Ben!
    We’ll be seeing ya on the next spin around to wish you the best at 64.
