Seems that George Roof, my favorite grouchy old guy besides me, is going to be 59 today, February 28th. I know many of you folks in here like him like I do. I know many of you read all his posts and are thankful for them. I know some of you have read his book about huntingin the old days. Lets let George know how much we love him, its his day today. Help me wish this white haired old man a Happy 59th Birthday. Just post below me here, itll be like signing a great big card for him. Hes a good man, you guys and girls. Happy Birthday George. Love, Bill Yox

Happy Birthday George Roof,
Good morning Geroge, from the Taxidermy forum, Happy 59th, birthday, I hope you have room in your scrap book, for this big Birthday card. I am sure, I will not be the only one, to join in and sign it. I only have the honor, of starting this, because of a friend of yours, request.
Thanks for all you do, on this forum, and in the taxidermy industry. I for one, think you are ok, just the way you are, keep on telling it, like it is. I know, somewhere out there, is a young boy, in this taxidermy world, saying, I am going to be somebody, I want to be like George.
So again George, Happy Birthday and see you soon, at the World Show.
George,I had this ready yesterday, so I am not changing it, it just goes to show you, that you have many friends, wanting to wish you the best. Bill, you were two minutes early.
I figured you to be older! LOL I couldn't resist. All joking aside thanks Bill for the heads up on George's Birthday. Happy Birthday George and thanks for everything. Dan Hudzik
I hope that bottle of Krowtann I sent you gets there in time! LMAO Enjoy the the day and don't do any shoveling until tomorrow!
Enjoy it while you're young...kid.
May you have many more, and the perfect health to go with it.
As a born and bred yankee (N.H.),who alos is getting a little long in the tooth.i gotta tell ya,how reading your posts make me smile.Direct and honest opinions,in an age of political correctness,are less copmmon, and more refreshing all the time.As an "old fart",who's reported biggest fault ,is also being brutaly honest,i can only say this...enjoy the serenity that comes with the knowing.Health and happiness to you and thank you for the time you have taken,and all you have contributed. Ed
Happy Birthday George! We appreciate your knowledge and straight forwardness!
Jeremy & Danielle
I certainly appreciate your imput on the forum - even though I do have to disagree with you on occasion. Debate is very enjoyble!
Happy birthday. There is a silver lining. Christoforo is older than you , me, and Methuselah.
I never realized how many poeple visit this site... Especially between the time I go to sleep at night and when I wake up in the morning..
Anyhow! HAPPY BIRTHDAY! that is if it really IS your birthday and Bill isn't playing a dirty trick!
See ya at the WTC! (oh and NTA) Heck I'm sure I'll see ya somewhere in between too!
Bonne Fete Mon Ami. There are still a few bridges to burn Geo. Have a happy birthday. Thanks for all your help and patients with us...LOL.
I really appreciate your "shoot from the hip" Style. You're posts are as entertaining as they are informative. Seems as if I know yopu even though we've never met. Here's to many more and see you at the world show. Carl
P.S. If you ever get to feeling down you can always search for this post by hitting the orange button over there on the left!
Talking to you is like looking in the mirror 10 years ago. Since I'm older than both you and Christoforo (and wiser)I hope you survive the next 10 years as well as I have.Good luck, JL
Happy Birthday George! Enjoy each day...and keep the sarcasm rollin'
Happy Birthday! Hope you enjoy many more.
Take the day off ;with pay. Happy Birthday
Happy Birthday to a very good friend, a straight shooter and an all around nice guy!

I am still a little surprised you didn't tell me yesterday! You got out of 59 birthday lickins and you know Alex would of loved to see that!....but thats okay! Hope you have a great birthday!
Holy Cow - you look like HELL for your age! Just kidding George - enjoy...
I'd have thought from your occassional "crotchity-ness" you were much further along in seniorville!
You hav a good one my friend, do something you like to do today!
Hope you enjoy you Birthday George, your advice on this forum is great, I chuckle to myself when I see some of the peoples posts to your responses, You are one of a kind, Don't change a thing.
Heck you look pretty good for 59 - you must have been put together with Krowtan huh? Have a great day George
Move SOUTH! thats where you belong.
Hope you get some BB's for the old Red Rider. Peace- Jeff F.
Hoping you have a great day on your birthday!

Your a good person . I havent got to the book yet but I have used your taxi tuk . People like you keep our industry going in the right direction . I authorize you to take the day off today!
Have a great day, do something nice for yourself!
Since you don`t drink ,tell Jeanette I`ll take that beer.See you in a few weeks at the Worlds.Me and my Irish time traveler!
My oldest son shares the same day for his birthday, so I will think of you at his party. Have a great day.
Fifty Nine? I'll be fifty nine on April 16> I thought you were way older than me lol Seriously have a great day and the rest of the year too
Congratulations George, have a great day and many more. Will see you soon.
I just got home from a little trip and almost missed the big day.Happy Birthday George from both of us!
And many more.
now when I hit the ORANGE search button I get a reponse for "Happy Birthday George", right next to "KrowTan". Thanks for your infinite wisdom and knowledge.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, George. Any wishing you many more!
Many nutritionalists, and doctors as well, will agree that the human body has the potential to live 120 years with the proper nutrition and daily excercise, so you ain't even half way there.
Have a great day ;)
but I turned 39 today. I can't believe I have the same birthday as the taxidermy legend, George Roof. Happy Birthday George. 59? are you sure you have your facts correct Bill.
Hope you have a great day, with many more to come!
LOL I know by supper time you're tired and then tomorrow you are re-tired again right :) You'd go nuts without taxidermy anyways, so happy birthday and we wish you many more!
Happy birthday George! We may argue and fight and all of the other things that go along with that type of behavior but I am glad your out there plugging away to help make things better for taxidermist by helping as you are needed. It is great to have experience, knowledge and be willing to help others without an agenda.
Perhaps you and I see more eye to eye than what we both believe.
HAVE A FINE DAY AND MAY YOU HAVE MANY MORE!
What do you call it when lots of gorgeous babes crowd around you at an NTA Convention and wish you a happy birthday? A dream.
And does it seem like every year, even though we have birthdays and get older, we actually look younger and more attractive than ever? Or is it just me?
Yes, it is your birthday, and you have the brains, the good looks, and the talent...and a million other things to wish for.
And don't think of this as getting older...think like I do. It's just a golden opportunity to demoralize your friends with your ageless good looks!
Thinking of you today and all the good times we've shared at NTA conventions. And now, on your birthday, we want you to know you are thought of fondly.
George hope you have a very happy birthday.
You are indeed a rich man, to be so loved and respected by your peers. Take a day off. You've earned it. All the best!
As mean and rude as you are I cant beleave that anyone on here would wish you a happy birthday I thought that you had insulted everyone by now, I guess not. So here is a kiss my ass on this special day for you
I got you a gold watch, but it must be lost in the mail. Well anyway, I hope you have a great day. P.S. Thanks for all those great tips over the last couple years.
Old man ! 59 huh? I thought for sure you were an immortal at least 500 in the taxidermy business LOL
Gold watch ,,lol gold scalpel is more like it...
I love you guy! And miss you muchly.
I got to admit when i first started visiting the forum i thought George was a great big ASS but i came to my senses and realized he probably has forgoten more than most of us will ever know so for those of you that think bad of George needs to wise up and take all his free info he gives and put it to good use he may sound a little rude at times but thats just George i have never met him but it would be a great honor to meet someone that means so much to the taxidermy world maybe one day if i make it to the world show ill get to met him.So HAPPY BIRTHDAY George and i hope you have a great time today.
many more to come!
