    I'll be vs I'll have...

    Hello everyone,
    the question is:
    What's the diffrence between thos two sentences?!:
    A) I'll be 60 on Friday.
    B)I'll have turned 60 by Friday.
    Well, I'll try to answer first and then please correct me if I'm wrong.
    Those sentences are not similar in meaning. That is to mean:
    A)Means that beginning from the next saturday I'll enter my 61st year.
    B) Means that I completed my 59th year in Thursday and I'm beginning my 60th year in Friday.
    am I right?!!!!!

    They are similar in meaning:
    A) I'll be 60 on Friday.
    B)I'll have turned 60 by Friday. or: I'll turn 60 on Friday.

    I am 59 now. Friday is my birthday. On my birthday, I will turn (=become, start to be) 60.

    NO: A)Means that beginning from the next saturday I'll enter my 61st year.
    Yes: B) Means that I completed my 59th year in Thursday and I'm beginning my 60th year in Friday.
