    Congratulations. You've seen a lot of progress zoom by in your years. May you have many more.

      Happy 61st birthday. I admire the authentic-looking padding of the Santa costume!O:-)

              Happy birthday, David! And Merry Christmas too. (Like you, my birthday is close to Christmas, Jan 7, which used to cut down on the birthday presents -- funds already exhausted!)

                81st Mike (although some think I don't look that old). I worked hard on the "padding".

                Thanks, all, for the good wishes and nice comments.

                The speakers seen beyond the tree are for my Allen 305-B.

                David

                  David,

                  It was my attempt at a birthday present–a couple of decades less (and I couldn't read it accurately without my glasses). When I explain my mid-section, I generally tell people I'm "well rounded," or "heavily invested." They never ask more–hmmm.

                  Happy birthday, though!

                    David, you look great! Are you about ready for round two? Happy Birthday!

                      Jay999, not sure I know where "round two" begins, but I suspect I've been in it a while now. Thanks for the compliment.

                      Michael, I tell folks I am "well insulated"....

                        Round Two begins with a new day, looking forward to something you've been wanting to do. Spending time with the grand children, or perhaps great grand children, sprucing up the workshop, or taking a loved one to lunch and visiting over a finished meal. And of course, a couple of hours at the organ every day....music making keeps you sharp and looking forward to mastering new pieces to play.

                          A belated happy birthday David! I just love the way you dress! And the "padding" someone mentioned to be authentic looking indicates inside knowledge that it is not "natural" padding. Mine, sadly apart from being truly authentic and natural, is also a little more expansive than yours... For 61 you really look very young and I pray that you will enjoy a whole lot more peaceful years and continue to grace this Forum with your informative and pleasant inputs.

                          Blessings for 2019!

                            Nico, the "padding" is natural--I'm definitely overweight. And I'm 81, not 61. (Was that a typo, or did you really think I was that young?)

                              Naww, I was just trying to be jestily polite, knew you are about eight years ahead of me in years and looking well. It helps when someone thinks you are younger.. Anyhow. I hope that you enjoyed a lovely time with loved ones. After all, one gets to be 81 only once in a lifetime...;-)
