Born the day the Korean armistice was signed, Gene. July 27, 1953. My youngest texted me this morning, "Happy End of the Korean War Day".

Thanks everybody. You guys make this old dog feel like a young pup again. Well, at least I don't feel as much like an old dog.

Except you, Joe. That video of those talented young frauleins made me feel like a real old dog. I need to go howl at something.

Happy Birthday Dave......... never thought you would make thirty. As they say only the good die young. As you age I've notice your turning into a pretty-good old boy. May you have many more, we need you here.
