Lordy Lordy, look who's 40!
on: October 20, 2014, 02:33:22 AM
Oh crap, it's me....  :facepalm:

Yes it's that time of year again- time for my birthday giveaway!

This year I found something a bit special since it's a big year- a Leatherman Charge SLV, a perfect match for my rapidly greying hair.... 



Sorry for the awful photos, but if you really hate them you can take your own pictures to share when and if you win!

How do you get in on this?  Simple- pretend you like me enough to wish me a happy birthday here in this thread.  Yup, that's it.  Do it before midnight tonight (October 20, forum offset time of course) and you'll be entered into the draw.  I'll pick one lucky winner at random and they will get this awesome Charge SLV!



For those not familiar with the SLV, it is basically the same as a Charge AL which means it's an aluminum model, only instead of black anodized handle scales these are grey, and this model was an exclusive to Costco a number of years ago.

So there you have it- Happy birthday to me, and an especially happy un-birthday to a lucky member!

 :ahhh The big 4-0!  Fortunately I've got several more years until I hit that mark.  Well, my left knee feels about 70 at times....  Happy Birthday Boss!  :cheers:

40?  Man, now that I see 50 in the rear view mirror, 40 looks pretty damned good!  Happy Birthday, Grant!

Happy Birthday you wizened old crow  :D

Having passed this milestone 361 days ago, allow me to pass on what to expect. You awake to feel exactly the same as you did the day before. There is a slight murmering of being 40, but you figure it's not all that bad after all really. Everyone takes the piss, and you shrug it off and have a good giggle with them, and once the day is passed you resume business as normal. A few weeks later reality sets in, and all you can think is "Oh, SMURF! I've officially passed my shag by date" :dwts: My realisation came when I remembered training up a 38 year old woman several years before, who's eldest daughter had just had a kid .... I was now old enough to be a grandparent!!!

So basically what I'm saying is that if you fel bad at any point on your special day, don't worry it gets a lot worse later  :rofl: :rofl:

Many Happy Returns Grant - returns to the toilet that is, an old man's bladder can only hold on so long ....  :D

Birthday greetings and salutations, may you have many more.    :salute: :D 

40 is not so bad, 50 starts to feel like you "getting on a bit" but when you hit the 60's you can't even tell yourself your aren't really old yet (and even if you did, your body will soon remind you that you aren't)  ;)

Happy birthday to you. Hope you have a great day celebrating with friends and family.

People say that age is just a number. To those people, I say you obviously haven't applied for any kind of insurance!
