On turning 53 years of age.


Today is my birthday.  I wish to thank all of y'all that took time out of your busy lives to wish me a happy one.  I really mean it.  I've had a bunch of texts, e-mails, and phone calls expressing good wishes.

Y'all are the bomb.

It was great!

Woke up at 0400.

Hit the snooze button only once.

Got out of bed at 0415, and tinkled.

Started the coffee pot.

Went up to the office and answered some electronic mail for Daddy's business until 0430 when the coffee pot finished.

Drank my first cup, did some billing for Daddy's business until 0450.

Ran like a scalded dog to the bathroom, and took a dump at 0451 (approximately).  Coffee works me like that.

Poured the second (and last cup of the day...don't want to get no fibronoids from too much caffeeeeen) at 0459.  Answered some personal g-mails, and looked at some online news, and blog posts.

0525 got dressed, & washed my face & combed my hair...and stumbled down the stairs to meet the day... (catch that one, and winz you a prize). 

Hit the clock at my day job at 0555 HRS.

Worked there until 1430 HRS...made my way home.

Started working on my own biz at 1500 HRS...did that until 1730.

At 1800 HRS, I ate a fabulous grilled cheese sammich (made with home-made onion bread & pepperjack cheese), and The Kroger Sour Cream & Onion Rippled 'Tater Chips.

I could not be any better at 53 than it was at 52!  

Today, I consider myself the luckiest man on the face of the earth.

Good health...good wife...job I love...loving parents, and younguns all still with me...and good friends, like y'all.

Lou ain't got nothin' on me!
