The 40s track

“You’re on the 30s track, aren’t you?” my six-year-old asked of my age yesterday.

Laughing, I agreed I am. Nodding toward my husband, I added, “And he’s on the 40s track!”

A little later, I couldn’t help but notice how the 40s track suits him.


I’m already looking forward to his 50s track.

    My DH is on the 40s track as well. It really does suit him!

      After posting this, I remembered how one of my final college papers was on the anthropological basis for older guys being, to paraphrase, hot. I might rummage that up today!

    Love the pipe. Really adds to the look – I’ve never had the patience. Very Gentlemanly in total.

      His grandpa used to smoke a pipe, so it has some pretty positive connotations for him … in addition to evoking a bygone time, all while looking quite smashing. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Awww this is so cute. Also your six year old sure is a master of words! You married one handsome man, that’s for sure. ๐Ÿ™‚

      I’d never heard him use this “track” phrasing, so it tickled me! This last weekend, he busted out a whole bunch of new expressions that both thrill me and make me wonder where the heck the last almost-seven years have gone. ๐Ÿ™‚

        Hahaha, awww, they do grow up fast don’t they ๐Ÿ™‚ But they make you laugh while they do it.

    Perfect picture for this! โ˜บ

      I really wanted to use the picture, but I couldn’t figure out how … until Li’l D’s words went dancing through my brain. ๐Ÿ˜€

    That’s a great picture! And I love “40s track” ๐Ÿ˜€

      I have no idea where he picked up that phrase, but it still has me giggling this evening. (For all we were nervous about the “stern” second grade teacher, she’s structured but fun; Li’l D’s already thriving in second grade! Really, his teacher probably used the term somewhere … or it showed up in Calvin & Hobbes. :D)

        That’s great, I’m glad he’s doing well so far! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love it when spouses give each other shout outs! His track looks very good:-)

    Haha! What a smarty-pants. And the 40s track definitely looks great on Anthony – hubba hubba!
