Another Ring Around the Trunk

I'm 37 years old today. Is that still the mid-30s or do I have to start saying I'm now in my late 30s?

Roger Staubach was 37 when he retired from the Dallas Cowboys. Accordingly, before the year is out, I plan to retire from my government job to sell Rolaids and real estate. Lord knows I could use a whole bunch of both.

Yes, but don't forget Louis Kahn was almost 70 when he designed the Kimbell Art Museum and Nelson Mandela was 76 when he was elected President of South Africa...Happy Birthday!!

Well as usual I am a day late and a dollar short. I can't believe you are 37. It seems like yesterday you were sitting by the railroad tracks reading Ball Buster magazine. (your mother is gonna kill me) Anyway,happy birthday Gregory Winston!

30: You're 30. 31-34: Early thirties. 35-37: Mid-thirties. 38-47: Late Thirties.

Happy mid-to-late birthday!

Hpapy Birthday Greg! And yes, mid thirties still applies. I'm 37 too, and it's closer to 35 than 40, so it's mid.

That's my rule, I'm stickin' with it.

FYI: When you turn 39 you remain that age until you are 50. That's what my Mom did.

Happy Birthday, Greg. I turn 36 on the 9th, which is why I'm confident in saying that 40 is the new 30. At least, it better be!

Happy belated! You can still pass for 25.

I feel your pain, and it's funny about the Staubach thing. I'm about to be 37 myself, and I never feel as if I'm that old until I'm watching sports on TV and some announcer comments on a player in the twilight of his career and it turns out he's 2-4 years younger than I am. OUCH!!
