How Old Are You Now?

This beginning of the second verse of "Happy Birthday" struck me this evening, after I finally recovered from a raucous afternoon of H.O.R.S.E. and P.I.G. at the Homestead Lutheran Academy compound with friends on Saturday afternoon.

My body just can't do the things it used to do. But, with the basketball hoop brought down to 7.5 feet (down 2.5 feet from regulation), it sure was fun to try. :-)

Thanks to all our friends who are "getting old" with us. A toast, with deep heating rub, for everybody!

If we have to get old, at least we can have other "old folks" to have fun with along the way!

I love PIG AND HORSE. But my question to you is this...do you use periods or dashes between the letters to spell out the words during the game? : )

In Illinois, we just use the letters.

Scottius, lol! We just use the letters, too. I realize we live close to Pittsburgh, but we're not THAT bad.
