Funny, but just last night we had dinner with friends who have 3 kids.

The oldest said he is 3-1/2, his sister said she is 2-1/2. I merely said at what age do we stop adding "half" to our ages?

Obviously at some point beyond 40, right? :D

Hmmm, I don't use half any more. I just say I am celebrating the 25th anniversary of my 40th birthday. [smilie=happydance.gif]

According to "Wilkipedia" the present for a 20th anniversary could be either china or platinum. For the 25th it is silver. I did not get any silver on my anniversary. Did you get any china or platinum? :cry:

I don't know how I missed this one.

I checked "50's", but in six months that will change. [smilie=whistle.gif]

Wow, I didn't realize I'm such a youngin' (27). Makes me feel a little better that i don't have as many shows under my belt as a lot of pholks on here...
