Thanks for the kind words, guys.

 

My birthday weekend started with my super-duper, awesome wife, Jackie, coming by the raceway, with sweets for the racers, and of course, leading them, in singing "Happy Birthday".

 

She then generously treated, anyone who could go, to my home away from home, Taco Grill, for dinner.

Happy Birthday Mike.

That was nice of your wife to celebrate your Birthday where else but at the track.

And many more, which sounds a bit selfish now that I think about it. Without the raceway, what else would I do with my life?

HB Mike!

 

Cool! A track party! Did you win the race? Or did they have to turn the voltage down for you? ;)

Wait - this is the same guy on the slot magazine cover with lots of hair, big moustache, standing on a Purple Mile holding a big trophy? Welcome to 65, Mike - I have you beat by a few weeks. Time flies! Many happy returns, and thanks for all you do for us here on Slotblog, and for the hobby.

I'm 65 as well. I'd say that's still wet behind the ears on this forum.
