    A special shout out to my favorite leap year baby @dazzle. Happy 50th Birthday Daz. You still look and act like that 25 year old girl I met 25 years ago at Mardi Gras. The song for you today is from Rod Stewart You Wear it Well. X0

      TY@Patrick, you forgot that I was born at Midnight. Too many Mimosas perhaps:-). I will listen to Rod's song.

    She can't be 50 and be a leap year baby. 50 is not a multiple of 4. Unless you mean she's actually 200, then you divided by 4. Which is unlikely to say the least.

    Why do you lie? Stop being such a lying liar.

    Yes, happy birthday.

    If I had been born exactly 1 week later, I would have been a leap baby. That means I would have aged at one quarter the pace. So instead of being 48, I would now be 12. Awesome.

    @Dazzle, "I blew it without even trying." Now we know why you're there and I'm here. No not drinking, just a brain fart. At least you are celebrating today at Mark T's.
