Sigh.

Exactly one week to go until my last birthday that starts with a "3".

Not that I'm bitter, or anything...

Tough to hear. Today, January 17, is the second day of my 65th year. Less than 12 months to social security.
Suck it up, girl!
And keep posting; maybe I'll see another .44 Special I want.

Olde(really, really getting olde)Force

Hey, hitting the 4s in the age bracket makes you better lookin and better at other things too. I aint old, just well broke in at 54. It's all better after 40.

If it helps, when I first read the sentence, I thought you meant "turning thirty" and was unsurprised.

Aw - yer just a pup - to paraphrase Mr. Clemons: "Whenever I get to worrying about having a birthday I consider the alternative.

Well, Shucks Darlin', you sure are a cute thirty-something....

You're just trolling for presents, aren't ya? ;)

(I was going to use a different euphemism, but I realized it might be taken incorrectly, and you're very well armed.)

You are exactly 35 days older than I am. Perhaps that is why I enjoy reading your work as much as I do.

If you believe what my sister says, the female odometer stops turning over at 39. She's been 39 for several years now.

Perhaps, but you look like you're turning 29. Maybe in ten years you can worry about looking like you're turning 39.

Don't feel bad; I turn 55 on Saturday. So on that day I will be going to a gun show to try and cheer myself up.
I suggest getting yourself a present to ease the pain.

You're not too far ahead of me. I'll hit the ugly "pre-40" birthday this summer.

Ah, well. I'll keep working towards my goal of "own one gun for every year of your life". I'll get there, or die trying!

Age "ain't nothin' but a number," honey. Enjoy every birthday; stop counting the years.

I'm currently marching in place, letting my sons catch up with me. Let them figure out how to explain it.

El Capitan my goal is to have a year for every firearm I got.

Youngster. I've been in the fours since '05.
Do what a friend does--she didn't just turn 42, it was the twelfth anniversary of her 30th birthday.
Seriously, Tam, they're right--you could pass for a decade younger.

The day after that is number 43 for me. Don't sweat big round numbers! It'll be okay.

I hit 43 a coupla weeks ago, and I feel younger than I did at 33.

When my brother's wife turned forty he threatened to exchange her for two twenties. She told him "Honey, you're not wired for 220."

Oh, yeah, like you'll get any sympathy from me. Think of it this way, you made it to this point (I know some who did not), you're not as old as many of your readers (including me) AND you're a damn sight better looking than most people in this world. You've got little enough to complain about.... uh, oh yeah, BLESS YOUR HEART!
