Yesterday was Kong's 22nd birthday. Here's an appropriate bit from Simon & Garfunkel about age & the passing of time.

"Leaves That Are Green" (by Paul Simon, 1966)

I was twenty-one years when I wrote this song
I'm twenty-two now but I won't be for long
Time hurries on
And the leaves that are green turn to brown
And they wither with the wind
And they crumble in your hand

Thank you, Stoo! And I've actually never heard that song. But it is very nice.

Not only that, the B-Day itself went really well, probably the best in a few years...thanks again.

Harrison Ford tops celebrity birthdays for July 13


First posted: Sunday, July 13, 2014 02:00 AM EDT

Poor Harrison Ford will be hobbling around the house this year for his birthday.

The actor, who recently injured himself on set of the upcoming "Star Wars" sequel, turns 72 today.

Happy birthday, Harrison, and take it easy.

Here are some interesting facts about Han Solo:

His father had German-Irish ancestry and his mother’s side was Jewish, immigrants from Russia.

He’s been married three times. The first time to Mary Marquardt. The second was to Melissa Mathison and his third wife is Calista Flockhart. He has five children.

Mathison, ex-wife No. 2, wrote the screenplay for E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial.

Lives on a ranch in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.

He has a species of ant (Peidole harrisonfordi) and spider (Calponia Harrisonfordi) named after him for his conservation work.

Here are some other stars celebrating birthdays today:

Patrick Stewart (74), “Community” star Ken Jeong (45), Cheech Marin (68), director Cameron Crowe (57) and Canadian singer Deborah Cox turns 40.

The wrestler? (Being a horse I thought you'd have preferred Giant Haystacks).

And your birthdays have never been the same since.

I guess you could call him that, seeing as how he only threw punches at Harrison like Andre the Giant.

British wrestling, back in the days of Shirley Crabtree, was a bit like this:

Hahaha! Well I didn't get wasted but I did have some great food and drink with friends and made the winning shot for me and my teammate on one of the pool games, so felt like I restored some dignity after a rusty start! And then I get to celebrate with family on Sunday.

As for visiting the "losers" I missed you guys, and wish I could visit more often, so thought I should say Hi! Thanks for the Birthday wishes!

Happy Birthday to Dr. Gonzo!

He's probably seen it before but here are The Doors on Los Angeles TV.
