Another Year, Another Birthday!

Today is my XXX birthday! I stopped counting birthdays many years ago.

It’s getting real depressing now that I’m getting older. My joints are starting to ache, which is the first sign of age. I was in the store the other day and an elderly woman, clearly in her own little world cut right in front of me.

I jokingly said to my wife, “Is that what I have to go through in 40, 50 years?” and “If I do end up like that, take a shot gun and blow my brains out!”

I’m not even thinking about it. It’s just too depressing. Unlike last year when I was taking it easy at home, I’ll be spending my birthday covering a high school basketball game on the court in Kanata, Ontario.

Here are some folks who were also born on this date!

    Nick Carter is not FORMALLY of the Backstreet Boys at all. They are still recording, and are presently midway in a world tour in support of their last album.
