It may be a bit early, but I have work through the night and I do NOT want to miss a Saturday Happy Birthday to Mr. B.
At 50 you are simply the best of Vintage Aircraft.
You may have a little trouble getting started on a cold morning,
and there is always a bit more in the way of maintenance
but you're totally classic, turning heads as you taxi by,
with a value that has increased greatly over time.
It's been an honor to be your friend, sharing your table (seriously, you need your own cooking show), range bench and all the adventures with you and Midwest Chick, assorted Ninja cats, and Schmoo and Barkley, who we miss so very much.
