Happy Birthday V
« on: April 29, 2010, 11:45:08 PM »
I believe today is actually V's Birthday.

I am not sure how old he is, but from what I have heard, he was not actually born. He was molded from the sand and dust in Piru.  >:D

Then was misplaced on a far away continent, only to return decades (?) later to regain his rightfull heritage.

Happy Birthday, Phil....

I heard he was 50 today... But I think he looks MUCH older!!!   >:(

Thats why I now shave my face completely, to get rid of the gray hairs. 

Just something about hitting the big 50....

I think I am in trouble now. Bye.

    Is there some kind of scam going on, here?

    Didn't I see a bunch of posts a couple of months ago, trumpeting "V's Birthday"? (I don't know, time is a funny thing in Appleseed - it could have been a year ago. ::))

    Gee, if he's only 50, that's good news. Actually, GREAT news! We should be able to squeeze another 25, maybe 30 years out of him before he drops.  >:D >:D

   Thanks for being part of this program, Phil.  O0

Dad calls it "sun-bleach".... You know, as in, he's been out in the sun to much. ???    :D


LLP,
We tell Dad that he gets the "sun-bleached" hair because his kids are so radiant. **) Or that he's got so much wisdom, it's overflowing. ;D

OK, enough of this! SOM SOM, get back to work.

Every time I start feeling like I'm old I just go Appleseed. When I see some of the folks who persevere on the line with problems far in excess of any discomforts I feel I am rejuvenated. Again, thanks.

Now back to work  ~~:)

Now, now...I have to chime in with blessings from WV!  :) Notice I didn't mention that awful "B" word?  ;D  Besides, I heard people stop counting these at 40...or maybe it was 30...
