Birthday Present

So it's my birthday today! 12/12/12 26 great years and for my birthday I recieve an oil leak Take the car to my shop and it has every problem everybody else has with oil leaks. Pretty much every gasket that has anything to do with holding oil in needs to be replaced along with the alternator bracket. The good news is, parts included (which like everyone knows the parts cost is low) my guy is charging me $1300 which isn't that bad compared to the $3500 the BMW dealership was probably going to charge me. All in all I can't complain, being able to be alive for 26 years is a blessing in itself! I see you guys as family being I talk and visit here more than I do facebook! I hope you all have a happy holiday and enjoy your time with family and friends!!!

At 26 I was, lets just say, stupid. Buy a house if you can, build your credit and always pay on time or before. Find a good mate, there is one for you and mine is my best friend.

Have kids early as I was 30 and have a 9 yr old. I should have not waited because he is the best thing in my life and all I live for, my son I love so much.

My grandmother always told me that I could do anything I ever wanted If I put my mind to it, the best advice from her ever.

My grandfather told me that the skin between my legs is the most worthless piece of flesh on your body, at 41 it's still up in the air???????

Happy birthday.

For your awesome grandfather that was funny! I've been blessed to find the best woman in the world and she married me! You have some good advice and I appreciate all of it! It's very wise to listen and recieve the wisdom of those who have gone before you! I definitley believe that! Thanks

Happy belated birthday. I remember 26 and knew I had a good life and at the time I had a 528e that I absolutely loved. Great, solid, car that should still be in my garage.

Enjoy your birthday this weekend and that fine ride.
