what did you do for your fortieth birthday?

Or, if, unlike me, you have not turned forty yet, what do you plan on doing?

I just invited friends and family. I wanted a mango cake! I could have made one, but I would have needed to ignore various priorities. I am trying to make my own root beer and ice cream for homemade root beer floats, but I cannot find a manual ice cream maker! Ones on-line go for $100!

Have a great day!

People in the past married early... too early to perceive it was a trap.

14 years later, still married. 2 kids & still happy.

But hey, let's not carry away the thread.
I cannot remember precisely what I did on my 40th birthday, but it will have involved friends and family.

Never really been into birthdays. Besides, I was 31 when I officially turned old, so 40 wasn't much of a milestone.

Congratulations to you and your family !

My point was that marriage without mature minds it's more dangerous.
I supose you were more mature when married than most people.

Xist is in search of suggestions.
Maybe a good idea would be something less conventional than a typical party.
