Palomino we thank you so much for all of the extensive research that you have done to create more interest in our "Checker Trivia Section". "Checker Trivia question of the Day"? Who gave Palomino this interesting nickname and why this name? (Cont.)

Well, thank you, thank you, yes I'm another year older (39 +++ and some more, ha,ha,ha) and still getting older ever day.

When I have more time I'll tell you about the nickname, right now I have cake to eat. :)

Dear Pal, when my father im law, who was born 1938 turned 60 I made the following arithmatics:

When I was 15 in 1983, he was 45, that means he was three times as old as me.
Now in 1998 he was 60 and I was 30. He was just twice as old as me.

In 2028 when we will celebrate his 90th birtday, I will be 60, then he is just one and a half time as old as me.

But what is does this calculation show us ?

That he doesn't grew old as fast as I do!

Think about it ;-)

Congratulations,

Ingo Zachos

Thank you Ingo,

I looked back to 1970, and calculate that at that time your father-in-law would have been your "future father-in-law" and that when he was 32 you were 2, sixteen times your age, also

in 1971, he was 33 and you were 3, eleven times your age

in 1973, he was 35 and you were 5, seven times your age

in 1974, he was 36 and you were 6, six times your[/b] age

in 1978, he was 40 and you were 10, four times your age

also, in 1964 your father-in-law was two times my age, so how old am I :?:
