    Hello, Forumites!

    Today I'm celebrating the completion of 82 years of life, also known as my 82nd Birthday. Tomorrow I'll be entering my 83rd year of life.

    I'm thankful that I'm enjoying good physical, mental, and financial health, except for a mildly arthritic lower back.
    I've never had a hospital stay, and gave up smoking 41 years ago.

    I've been retired for exactly 20 years yesterday, and am enjoying my retirement because of good friends like you all, and of course my Family, my Wife, and other Pets!

    Various hobbies keep me active as well.

    Below is a picture of a 1936 Ford 4 door sedan, like the one I owned while in high school in the early 1950's.

    It was the only car of the 27 I've owned that was the same age as me!

    It's new car Full Price in 1936 was $580.

    Cheers,
    Hal (I'm having my favorite dinner at the Steer & Stein tonight: Country Fried Steak with a 32-oz. Stein of Beer!)

    Enjoy your Birthday dinner @Hal Pollner .

    I'm a big fan of vintage vehicles... and that one looks very similar to the vintage Austin 10 my father owned in the 60's..

    Hal, wife and I can only HOPE we make it to your age. When my wife turned 70 this past January, she said "turning 70 is ok, but not nearly as good as I thought it would be." She also said "thought these aches and pains would go away when I turned 70, definitely didn't happen."

    Holly, the 1936 Austin 10 resembles the 1936 Ford only slightly, as you can see from Internet pictures, but thanks for the comment!

    If you like Vintage cars, here's a 1928 Hudson Super Six. We came from back east to California in a car just like this in December 1944.

    Dear Forumites,

    Thank you all over the place for the Birthday Wishes!

    Next year will be an unusual one, because 83 is a Prime Number and has no Divisors.

    Yowsah!

    Hal
