My Annual Tribute To Myself...

If I don't, nobody else will.

"My friend, I have just realized that we are both fools, but mine is the greater folly, for I am an older fool."
~ Cyrano de Bergerac

Famous people born on this day, December 5th:

Martin Van Buren, George Armstrong Custer, Walt Disney, Strom Thurmond, Little Richard, Jim Messina, Morgan Brittany, Art Monk, Frankie Muniz.






Not so famous: Me

I've been perusing Facebook this morning. I have received several "Happy Birthday" messages from my Facebook friends.

Because of Facebook, I now have more friends than I've ever had at any given time during my 60 years on this planet.

I don't even know many of them

Puts things in it's proper perspective now, doesn't it?

Trader Rick,

What the heck do you mean by "Ginger General"?!

I only know of one person sharing my birthday - U.S. Grant!

Half of your list I don't even recognize. :oD

Happy Birthday, Mark!

I share my birthday, actually birth DATE, with Twiggy.

Z said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Mark!!

I share an extremely conservative past president and a burned out liberal famous folk singer; thereby completely throwing out ANYTHING to do with astrology :-)

Lt. Col. Geo. "Hard Ass" Custer was a red-head.

Glenn E. Chatfield said...

Strawberry blonde to be more precise.

I am a Custer aficionado and have studied him quite thoroughly.

Ducky's here said...

Hmmm, Jan. 9. That wasn't tough.

Z said...

Ducky, is your birthday Jan 9?

Marshall Art said...

A belated Happy Birthday to you, Mark.

Off the top of my head, I know I share my birthday with Pete Townsend, and as a major Who fan, that's cool.

Trader Rick said...

Marky-Mark....

Always On Watch said...

Stopping by to wish you a blessed Christmas.

Jim said...

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, everyone! Happy Hanukkah!

Trader Rick said...

Glenn, I served with Col. Custer, I knew Col. Custer. George Custer was a friend of mine. Glenn, you're no George Armstrong Custer. LOL

Parklife said...

I think he gave up.

Mark said...

I did not give up. I lost my internet connection. I told you I am not rich. I simply could no longer pay the cable bill. I am using my cell phone to type this.

Parklife said...

Nooo.. I'm pretty sure he gave up.

Z said...

I wish you the best, Mark. you're missed

Parklife said...

Yes. I too am sad that the noted homophobe and racist isnt around.

Trader Rick said...

PARKLIFE, it's incredible how much of an asshole you are...

Jim said...

Oh, the irony!

Parklife said...

Traitor Rick.. Nice to see you too!

Joe said...

Happy Birthday!

I turn 70 tomorrow (Sunday, January 29).

Don't worry...I just got a head start, that's all.

Parklife said...

If only Mark was around today, then Im sure he would be thrilled about Prop 8 going down (again) in flames.

Parklife said...

And..

NJ just signed up for gay marriage.

It sure looks like the homophobes are falling behind.
