How long ago was 1973?

This post is more than 2 years old.

A long, long, long time ago. Today I turn 40 and thankfully I don't feel a day over 39. ;)

Happy Birthday by the way. I turned 40 3 years ago. It's not so bad.

Happy Birthday Ray. Do you still smile the same :) as in 1976. Or coding & coding & coding (and little bit lecturing too) has done the more grey than expected on extreme top of your body frame? Again I do not believe you just turned 40 instead looks like you are 40 since last 40 years. he he he

Happy birthday, Ray. Sorry I missed it

Comment 31 by David McGuigan posted on 4/18/2013 at 12:25 AM

Happy birthday playa. For some reason I thought you were older than that. May be because you pulled a steak knife on me for not having seen Star Wars at a restaurant one time, and that's a really old person move. Hope the next 40 are even better.

Comment 32 by Raymond Camden posted on 4/18/2013 at 12:42 AM

Hahah - did I *really*? Geeze - I don't remember that.

Comment 33 by David McGuigan posted on 4/18/2013 at 1:17 AM

Totally did ( in fairness, it was a joke, you weren't really going to stab me I don't think ). I believe the other gem of the evening was when I ordered chocolate milk and you were like, "What are you 10 years old?".

It was in Arizona after a little micro conference Matthew Reinbold put on a long, long time ago.
