Turning 40 is HELL...


Recommended Posts



Blueskeys & ProfD at a Richmond Mid-Atlantic Keyboard Corner Meetup.



Let's wish ProfD a Happy Birthday, as TODAY he's trying really hard to make an easy transition to MIDDLE AGE... and it's not going so well. :rolleyes:


He could use our support and perhaps some choice words of wisdom to help him through it.


Everyone - Please help me in wishing our friend and fellow forumite (the old guy) a HAPPY BIRTHDAY.



OK, I'll start.

"Life begins at forty."


Middle age is the period of time when you've achieved enough wisdom and experience to kind of know what you're doing, and you still have enough energy and drive leftover from youth to implement what you've learned.


Welcome to the club, my friend! :cool:


HaPpY BiRtHdAy, ProfD!!!

Thanks Tom and to everyone for the b-day wishes. :thu:


First and foremost, 40 is not the new 30. :rolleyes:


My biggest issue with turning 40 comes down to several things.


One is the damsel business is a different game. ;)


*If* I decide to tote a 25 yo, I'll get the dirty old man looks.


Sticking with 40 and up, they want to review my stock portfolio, offshore accounts, property holdings, etc. By date #2, they want marriage. :)


While I feel great physically, that knowledge, wisdom and experience is a blessing and curse.


I'm wise enough to "know better" in avoiding life IEDs but I'm also less inclined to take reasonable risks.


As a result, an armored guard has to bring my money before I'll move my gear and/or play the same tired tunes with musos on autopilot. :D


I imagine these *issues* will sort themselves out before I *really* get old and jaded and/or have to rely on performance ehancement. :laugh:


Thanks again for the well wishes. KC rocks. :cool:

I'll keep it keyboard oriented. From age one to forty, life is like pushing a grand piano slowly up a big hill. After forty, it all goes downhill quickly!


Hope you have yourself a fine one! Congrats on the attainment of this venerable age.
