Where does the time go? The years just fly by. Before I got to forty age never bothered me at all..now it becomes so apparent that really your not here long! 42 today...does this mean I'm middle aged???

SO to any youngsters out there..make the most of it..your not young long.

Happy birthday, Wodin.

Think of it this way (I'm the same age +1)- you made it to the age when computers keep all those rules for the board wargames we are now starting to be too forgetful to remember!

@benpark..thanks mate

@Orm..yeah seen this trailer..not sure about it..I really enjoyed the German Stalingrad film..though I couldn't get the subtitled version and the dubbing was terrible. I will see what reviews are like of this Russian film though.

30 seemed fun, no longer to be written off as just a young adult.

39 bothered me more than 49 did though, not that 49 was any fun...

But it was more alarming to realize damn, I am no longer even close to young.

Enjoy each birthday though Wodin. Wargaming isn't dying, but we all eventually do :)

Happy Birthday Jason! You are middle aged and you have a long time to go. The older you get the wiser and smarter you get...just be sure to give your brain a workout everyday. War games are a great workout and don't forget to read as much you can!

Happy birthday Wodin!

I hit 50 last month. Now I measure my life in wargame campaigns. I wonder how many more times will I get to conquer europe and the rest of the world.

I'll be 45 soon but still think I am 25 years younger until I get out of bed in the morning and look in the mirror. Yugh! LOL

Happy birthday
