Sam, once you reach 70, a day or two one way or the other isn't going to hurt. :laugh2:

In honor of your birthday, Larry, I'm only going to yell at you 72 times tomorrow at the race.
 
That should be an all-time low. LOL.

Oh boy....when Larry just walked in, I showed him my sign, and asked again, "72, correct?"

 

He replied, "No, 73".

 

I replied "So you were born in 45, not 46?"

 

"No, 46".

 

"So you are 72".

 

"OK".

We sang Happy Birthday to Larry at the race.

If you can stand me singing off key, go to the Chicagoland Raceway FB page.
