He's tried to keep it a secret but he let slip that today is his birthday. I'm sure you'll all want to send him a personal message with many happy returns of the day,
Happy Birthday Gary
Now who wants to run a book on how old he is

He was the oldest member to meet us today at Warley

Hmm, I know how old I am, and looking at the piccy of our Gary, along with other details gleaned over the months, Iwould estimate him to be around 45......

I'm older than people normally think. It is a very rare occasion that somebody gets my age right. If the Rolling Stones can keep going then so can I!

Those who know my age accuse me of having a "smiley face" which makes guessing trickey according to them. It probably also helps that I have inheritted my mums genes as she still has natural dark hair.

I did enjoy a piece of Warley MRC birthday cake by the way. I was allowed to have more than one piece!


Happy modelling
Gary

Which doesn't actually tell us much - keeping the cards close to the chest
. However I know what you mean about not looking ones age.

I think the rolling stones reference could be a two edged sword.....................

It's not so much how old we are - it's how we feel & whether we can remember things like what we are supposed to be doing on which day or not

Ouch! - but surely this comment belongs on the Alzheimers thread?

Even I have my limits when taking the p***. The Alzheimers thread is a serious subject with some very good points.

If we average the three guesses so far we end up with 49 - are we getting close?

Its more 50's than 40's.

It would have been hard to have started with "Hornby Hornby" if it was a 40's job.

I go to Status Quo concerts if that helps and I also like Pink Floyd, The Stranglers and Hawkwind as well as The Rolling Stones and The Who. Also got a few Queen albums (all of them?) and sing Queen tracks at French karioki nights! Those French songs are rubbish and the French appreciate a Brit singing Brit songs.

Happy modelling
Gary

I've seen the Quo and also have some Queen albums so that only says you have good taste not that you're an "old fart"


My Pops is 55 later this month and I'd wager you're a little younger than him, you've certianly got better hearing, Hey Bro


52 then will be my stap at it

That doesn't help really. I like the Who, The Floyd, The stones, status quo and Queen and I'm sooooooooooooo much younger than you.

Thats a worry, those are all groups I went to see when I was young. I saw Hawkwind three times, sort of.

Ditto, I even worked with Hawkwind once - they were so stoned/smashed they didn't even know where they were and had managed to leave some of their gear at another venue. That was weird.
