Today Marks 50 YEARS

…of Bingley.

I know. I can hardly believe it, too.

Birthday wishes are pouring in from all his old friends…

…but it seems like just yesterday he was a delightful, gamine youngster, reveling in…simple things.

Like playfully stealing borrowing airplanes…

Somehow he changed. LIFE changed him. Maybe it was the coffee. The box wine. The BOURBON.

Suddenly he was thumbing his nose at the world.

Thuggishly using his immense strength to intimidate old Democratic ladies at CostCo…

…and muscle his way to the front of lines for pictures.

But with the love of an extraordinary woman ~ our NJSue ~ whom he treats with all the love, dignity and reverence an icon of her stature demands…

…he has remained the best brother anyone could ever buy on the open market.

Happy Birthday. I mean it.

    Happy Birthday Bingley! Your 50 ways to celebrate must begin with bacon and have a lot of potables following. The end, of course, would be bacon.

    A belated Happy 50th, Mr. B. I eagerly await the details of your first colonoscopy.

    One nice thing about being 50 is that you don’t have to worry about avoiding temptation. It avoids you.

    Hope you had a great day.

    And a belated from me as well! Happy Birthday! Having recently hit that magic number myself, I can attest it is survivable.

    Happy Belated 50th, Mr B. The first 50 are pretty cool, the 50 after really cool, and the 50 after that amazing.

    Clearly 50 is the new 22.
