Happy Birthday, Bro! March 25, 2012

Posted by nrhatch in Humor.

Yo Yo Little Bro . . . you are older than you’ve ever been before but you are still far too young to receive a Birthday Greeting from The President!

Quotes to Ponder:

* About the only thing that comes to us without effort is old age.

* Looking fifty is great . . . if you’re sixty. ~ Joan Rivers

* Despite medical advances, there is still no cure for the common birthday.

* Inside every older person is a younger person wondering what the hell happened. ~ Cora Harvey Armstrong

* Birthdays are good for you ~ the more you have, the longer you live.

* A diplomat is a man who always remembers a woman’s birthday, but never her age. ~ Robert Frost

Tigger-Looking-At-His-Tail* Old age isn’t so bad when you consider the alternative. ~ Maurice Chevalier

* If I’d known I was going to live this long, I’d have taken better care of myself. ~ Ubie Blake

* Just remember, once you’re over the hill you begin to pick up speed.

* No wise man ever wished to be younger. ~ Jonathan Swift

* A man who views the world at fifty the same as he did at twenty has wasted thirty years of his life. ~ Muhammad Ali

Aah . . . that’s better!

Tomorrow you will be even older, so make the most of today 😉

Happy Birthday from the UK

nrhatch - March 25, 2012

Thanks, nuvofelt! I’m a couple years older than my younger brother . . . he’s now the age I was a couple of years ago.

(Can you tell I’m good at math?) 😉

Fun quotations and happy bday to your Bro!

nrhatch - March 25, 2012

He lives in a different time zone (2000 miles away) . . . so I thought I’d throw a little “Cyber Party” for him!

3. Piglet in Portugal - March 25, 2012

Birthdays should be banned…bar humbug to Birthdays. I don’t want to get old…BWah…bwah

nrhatch - March 25, 2012

Ok, PiP . . . just remember: No birthdays ~> no birthday cake (which, as everyone knows, has NO calories). 😉

Piglet in Portugal - March 25, 2012

hmmm OK I forgot about the cake. LOL 🙂

nrhatch - March 25, 2012

I thought you must have. 😉

Happy Birthday, Nancy’s bro!

nrhatch - March 25, 2012

No matter how old he gets . . . he’ll always be younger than me. Lucky guy! 😀

5. Crowing Crone Joss - March 25, 2012

I tell my brother, no matter how old you get, you’ll still be my baby bother!!!

nrhatch - March 25, 2012

Same here, Joss! I’ve got one older brother and a younger brother and sister . . . great to be in the middle. 😀

6. Pocket Perspectives - March 25, 2012

Happy birthday little bro….great quotes, especially like that Mohammed Ali one!

nrhatch - March 25, 2012

I agree, Kathy! Consistency is consistently over-rated. 😉

7. CMSmith - March 25, 2012

I love the cartoons.

nrhatch - March 25, 2012

Maxine is such a cantankerous delight! 😀

8. Doug - March 25, 2012

Thanks everyone! If I’m 2 years younger than my older sister, that makes me 19, right?

nrhatch - March 25, 2012

Exactomundo! Of course, technically, like Edie, I’m “21 plus” . . . so that would make you an even “19 plus.” Hope you’re having a GRAND day.

9. barb19 - March 25, 2012

Happy Birthday wishes to your bro from the land Down Under!

nrhatch - March 25, 2012

I don’t know if he’s every received a birthday greeting from Australia. This could be a first! 😀

10. Andra Watkins - March 25, 2012

Happy to know another March birthday. Happy Happy to your brother, Nancy!!

nrhatch - March 25, 2012

Lots of FUN birthday girls and boys in March, eh? 😀

11. Perfecting Motherhood - March 25, 2012

I love Maurice Chevalier’s quote, it’s hilarious!

nrhatch - March 25, 2012

Yup . . . we grow older, or we don’t. There is no Door #3, yet.

12. ceceliafutch - March 25, 2012

The Ali quote is great! Happy birthday to your bro! May he, and you, have many many more. Such a delightful post! Thanks for including us in the celebration. I have my party hat on. 🙂

nrhatch - March 25, 2012

I love your party hat, Cecelia . . . it suits you! Thanks for the good wishes. 😀

13. jeanne - March 25, 2012

Happy Birthday to your little brother…

nrhatch - March 25, 2012

Thanks, Jeanne. Sounds like he had a great day.

14. jannatwrites - March 25, 2012

Love the birthday quotes! I hope he has (had?) a happy birthday!

nrhatch - March 25, 2012

He’s on Mountain time (in Colorado) . . . so he’s got 3 hours of “birthday” left.

15. Three Well Beings - March 25, 2012

Well I do like this! Since it’s only been a few days since my birthday I can very handily snatch some good from this! I LOVE the Ali quote, “The man (woman!) who views the world at fifty the same as he did at twenty has wasted thirty years of his life.” Isn’t that the most comforting thing about growing older? I would like to have my youthful appearance, to be honest, but I wouldn’t go back if I had to give up what I’ve learned! I think I got in just under the wire to give your brother a happy birthday, Nancy! Debra

nrhatch - March 25, 2012

You made it! He’s out in Colorado, so he’s got two hours to go.

I agree with you, Debra ~ I’d love to have my 20 year old body back . . . but NOT if I had to view the world the way I did at that age. I much prefer today’s perspective.

16. thirdhandart - March 25, 2012

Happy Birthday to your brother! Love that cranky lady, Maxine, and her Crabby Road antics. 😉

nrhatch - March 25, 2012

Maxine rocks! She’s who I want to be when I grow up. 😆

17. sweetdaysundertheoaks - March 26, 2012

Happy Birthday (belated) to your brother! I see chocolate chip cookies and CAKE!

nrhatch - March 26, 2012

As part of the cross-country celebration . . . we ate chocolate chip cookies and whoopie pies from Yoder’s last night. Yummy!

18. spilledinkguy - March 26, 2012

I hope your brother had a wonderful birthday, Nancy!

nrhatch - March 26, 2012

Thanks, Bob. Sounds like he had a suitable celebration with all of his kids present and accounted for . . . before two headed back to college in Chicago.

19. bluebee - March 27, 2012

They just keep on coming no matter how much we protest 🙂

nrhatch - March 27, 2012

True dat! As a child, birthdays couldn’t get here soon enough. As an adult, the candles are still smoking from “last year” when the next one arrives.

20. wightrabbit - March 27, 2012

Very reassuring words for someone who is only four months away form 60. Sixty!!! How did that happen? 😉

nrhatch - March 27, 2012

Those milestones sneak up on us, don’t they? 😉

21. eof737 - April 22, 2012

“””Happy Birthday to your brother! 🙂
