Awww, guys...

Sorry for the late reply but I had trouble getting up. Not that, silly, but you know, I can't find my walking stick. Let's start the joke coming...

Ray is so old that....

09-30-2006, 05:55 PM
You're not old, Ray, so stop it!

Happy Birthday! Have a wonderful day and make sure you eat lots and lots of cake!!

Here's a dozen to get you started...

Ray is so old that....

... when Christ was a corporal, Ray was his general.

... he still has his original map of where he put the fossils.

... his idea for 'oil' didn;t go over so big initially with the dinosaurs.

... counting all of his rings would take a Cray computer.

... he still believes 'carbon dating' is the same as a good night out.

... he remembers 'the Pacific Between' as a large empty canyon -- until the ice age.

... Neandrathal Man thanked him for the history lesson.

Happy Birthday, Ray.

v/r, Jason

Happy, happy birthday, Ray. Sorry I'm late, but I got up early and wrote.

Have a wonderful day. I'd offer cake, but I see there's plenty up above. You've already got a cat. What more do you need? Better still, what do you want?

PS - I ordered a rainbow for your birthday. :)

09-30-2006, 07:04 PM

Happy Birthday, Ray! I hope you have a great one. :)

10-01-2006, 07:38 AM
Okay, Ray, have some ice cream. But everyone knows that cake and ice cream calories don't count on your birthday!

Hope it's been a good one!

10-01-2006, 08:01 AM
Yes they do. I eat too much already. Except a few hiccups, it has been a wonderful day. I even got to meet and shake hands with the mayor, and rub elbows with some important people in town. Then I had dinner with George Clooney... okay, not really, but where Clooney dined. Anyway, everything was great.

And then I come here and see everyone smiling. I feel blessed.

Thank you for making this a great day.

10-01-2006, 08:07 AM
I figured that somewhere there had to be a birthday thread for you, Maestro. I'm glad I was right.

Happy Birthday. I wish you all the best for the coming year.


10-01-2006, 08:33 AM
Happy birthday, Maestro. :Hug2: Much love, and here's wishing you many more happy birthdays!!

Aren't you lucky that you share a birthday with me? yeah right I'm the lucky one.

Sounds like you had a great day. Hope the rest of your year is just as happy.

Better late than Never!

Happy Birthday, Sweetie! We all know you're 25+ forever.

:Hug2: HUGS & KISSES :kiss:

10-02-2006, 07:54 AM

10-02-2006, 04:26 PM
Sorry this is a little late--I've been out of town. Many, many more for you, Ray. And, thanks for all you do here at AW. Keep the stories coming.

10-02-2006, 04:36 PM
For the umpteenth time, Ray -- happy birthday, a little late! But really, it's good to stretch them out, isn't it?

10-02-2006, 05:10 PM
You know me... I am all about being long-lasting...


10-03-2006, 03:22 AM
Carole? Ummm. No. Can't say as though I know her? Oh. Wait a minute? Long blond hair...has a dog that sometimes pees in the house. Two kids. I think I vaguely remember her. Carole...sometimes Carol, but only reluctantly. Yes...that's her. HELLO CAR-O.
Haa haa. Funny. It's been busy as hell around here. And you do so TOO know me :)

10-03-2006, 08:56 AM
I know its a little late, but Happy Belated Birthday. I hope it was a good one!

10-07-2006, 04:07 AM
Happy belated B-day, Ray!

10-07-2006, 05:19 AM
Happy Birthday Ray...I hope you have many wonderful days ahead of you. What the heck..you are spring chicken compared to me...Live it up man!

10-07-2006, 07:35 AM
A very happy, very belated birthday Ray. Go ahead, stretch it out. You deserve it.

10-07-2006, 07:42 AM
Roses are red
Violets are blue.
Hope your birthday
Was as great as you!!!

Sure hope you had a great day!

Let's party: :Cake: :popcorn: :Cake: :snoopy: :TheWave: :PartySmil: :partyguy: :hooray:

10-07-2006, 08:48 AM
Did I miss Ray's birthday? I don't want him to think I was ignoring him. I was just, well, I missed this whole thing and you know how things get what with work and the family and bills and telemarketers and car troubles and you get a few beers in you and you just start to get a little tipsy and forgetful and things just pass by quickly without you realizing they needed your attention because you were sitting there listening to some music and typing away at your novel while the dog sat at your feet wondering if you were going to give him some affection and then of course you have that bag of chips that's calling your name in that evil fashion "Ferret, Ferret, eat me, eat me" the bag says and you can't ignore it's siren call any more than you can ignore the fact that your mother-in-law had been over a few days ago and left the water running in the deep sink in the basement and you can't help but wonder just how many gallons of water were wasted and what the next water bill is going to look like and yet there you are posting at AW and you suddenly realize you forgot to wish Ray a Happy Birthday.

10-07-2006, 08:57 AM
Missed this one, too.

Happy Late Birthday, Ray!

10-07-2006, 08:59 AM
See, I told you I was on the dying end of the grapevine.

Hope it kicked *** Ray!

Happy Birthday.

Did you ever have one of those threads that you saw, were getting ready to post in, and then got interrupted by real life and forgot to go back?

Well, this one is one of those.

Hey, Ray! Better late than never! Happy Birthday!

10-07-2006, 05:36 PM
Happy Birthday, again, Ray ;)

(actually I'm just waiting for robaie-i-i-o to come along and whine about it. His mangina appears to be on the rag this week.)

10-07-2006, 06:37 PM
Good God, is Ray STILL having a birthday?

I thought he was all set after I gave him my present.

10-07-2006, 07:25 PM
I hope it was waterproof. You know he likes to put his toys in the hot tub.

10-07-2006, 07:41 PM
Happy Birthday, again, Ray ;)

(actually I'm just waiting for robaie-i-i-o to come along and whine about it. His mangina appears to be on the rag this week.)And after I went to all that trouble (http://www.absolutewrite.com/forums/showpost.php?p=846158&postcount=69) for your birthday...

10-07-2006, 08:02 PM
Yeah, but it wasn't my *favorite* cake.

10-07-2006, 08:05 PM
Happy Belated Birthday, Ray.


10-07-2006, 08:29 PM
I hope it was waterproof. You know he likes to put his toys in the hot tub.

It was a picture of a woman and that's all I'm saying.

10-07-2006, 08:44 PM
Don't worry, in six months Rob will bump this thread again and you can all wish me a happy birthday once more.

I am so drained...

ETA: Actually you're not too late... today happens to be my Chinese Birthday. I was born the day after the Harvest Moon (or Moon Festival in China). Have some moon cakes on me!

Not only do you orgasm for an extended period, you get extended birthdays, too!

10-07-2006, 11:09 PM
It pays to be Chinese... you get two birthdays and a month-long celebration.
