When the only tool you have is a hammer, everything is a nail.
Support your local raceway, or you won't have one.
Slot cars are quad-pods.

New Zealand must be a day ahead of us. It didn't show up on my computer until today that it was Cheater's birthday.

 

Happy 22nd anniversary of your 39th birthday, Greg.

Greg's birthday reminds me I have one coming in November. :shok:

 

Looking forward to birthdays now. Just two more and I'm becoming a ward of the state drawing Social Security. The program is still quite social, secure...

 

Have a big one!

Mumbles?... Must be a Kiwi thing.

 
Radio shows have been a popular source of entertainment for children since the mid-20th century. Wellington radio DJ Lindsay Yeo headed a family show on Radio 2ZB in the 1970s and 1980s. He created a cast of characters who appeared on the show and at children's events. Listen to a conversation between him and the best-known character, Buzz O'Bumble.
 
Birthdays were always referred to as "Mumbles".    :)

G. B. Shaw supposedly said, "England and America are two countries separated by a common language." They should probably add New Zealand to the list... LOL!

Thanks for the explanation, Zip.

At least you can get better gas mileage (talkin' about the Model A... :wink2: ... :to_become_senile: ...) just don't go downhill too fast, huh!? HBD, Greg. :)

I am deeply honored and humbled by the enormous number of birthday wishes I have received here and on Facebook over the last couple of days, many from people I've not yet had the pleasure of meeting in person. Thank you, each and every one!

My wise and terribly-missed maternal grandfather always said, "Friends will get you through times of no money better than money will get you through times of no friends" and I will add that friends are far more valuable than money when times get tough, as has been the case with me in recent months.

It's obvious that even if I didn't have two nickels to rub together, I am a very wealthy man.
