On This Day

So far, it's been a good day. We've both taken the day off and have explored. She allowed me (yes, allowed, gave her permission) to browse a coin shop, one of the largest gold and silver dealers here in north Florida. I spent a bit.

I was given gifts, after a nice breakfast.

Why, you ask....well, about thirty-five years ago today my mother reached and gave my father a slap to the face. He said, "Ouch. Why'd you hit me?"

She replied, "Because you knocked me up."

He blushed. It was their first time at this baby making business and he wasn't sure of himself.

Then she said, "Now, take me to the hospital." Around noon she gave birth. I came out and said, "It's about time."

The nurse fainted.

(Really, thirty-five...no joke. Okay, maybe a wee bit more but not much.)

  7. Happy Birthday my friend. I have always been of the mind that one should never work on their birthday. So far, in my 35 years (wink wink) I have observed that custom & hope you do as well. Enjoy the rest of your day!

  21. An old(er) friend once said to me, "If you didn't know how old you were, how old would you be?" Wise words, I thought!

  25. Congratulations on another trip around the sun. There is a better than average chance that The Queen, M&M and I will be in the Tampa, FL area in mid September. If that's anywhere close to you, I hope you will give me the honor of toasting your health.
