What? Again?

"Young sir, I have just realized that we are both fools, But mine is the greater folly for I am an old fool." ~ Cyrano de Bergerac

It is approximately 7:05 AM. At this precise moment fifty-six years ago, I was making my mother scream for drugs.

Gad.

I hate getting old.

On the plus side, there's gifts.

And cake.

This happens this same time every year. It's no big deal. If it didn't happen, it would be a big deal. At least for me.

Happy birthday and many more!

It's the pits when your a kid and your BD is so close to Christmas. Everyone wants to combine presents. So for all those combined presents my humble condolenses! LOL

Happy Birffday, Bro!

Go out and buy yourself a new Big Screen Plasma, and wrap it up and put my name on the tag.

It's the least I can do...

Happy birthday. Give yourself a gift and take a vacation from the Inn of the Erudite Redneck.

There is no fool like an old fool, which helps when you are a member of the old farts club.

Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday, Mark! May you have many more.

I definitely screamed for drugs when I gave birth to my children. Did you ever see Carol Burnett's description of what it's like to give birth? Hilarious! She said if you want to imagine what the pain is like, just open your mouth wide, grasp your upper lip and pull it back over your head. OUCH!
Muslims should respect women more... after all, it's how they got here. :)

Happy Birthday Mark...
55 is really not that old, when your 85! :)
