      I hope they gave you a gold clock for all your years of sterling service! Do they do that in the States? Over here if you've worked all your life for a company, they give you a gold watch or clock (if it's one carat you're lucky), but usually when you retire.

      Seriously, all congrats. I can't imagine spending that long in one place. But if you love it then you're very lucky. How are you celebrating?

                  And here I thought this thread was about the 40th birthday of actor Patrick Fischler and actress Jennifer Ehle.

                  Happy 40th, Garry !

                    Pretty amazing for a guy that is 52 years old I'd say.

                        I thought they had child labour laws in the USA?

                          Not THAT long ago, surely?

                            Well, we are talking about the days when the new craze was walking upright.

                              I forgot to mention another anniversary of note. Either on January 2 or 3 (we can't agree on the date) was also 40 years since long time announcing partner Bob Hersh and I first met (I say the 3rd at the meet at the Cow Palace, he thinks the day before in the meet hospitality room in a San Francisco hotel).

                              January 3 also an embarrassing start to my track-journalist career. I was tongue-tied to be introduced to Olympic 800 champ Ralph Doubell (who was in-country working on his MBA at Harvard as I recall) and asked him if he was eager to get back to New Zealand. In typical Aussie fashion he gave me a rather pointed answer. If he hadn't been with his wife I'm sure my ears would still be burning.

                                re the above, I was doing the PA at a Duke freshman dual meet in about 1964, and in doing the intro to the 880, I proclaimed that " Peter Snell of Australia is the World Record holder at 1:45.1." I quickly corrected myself.
