ON THIS DATE IN HISTORY....,

....at 9:05am, Grandpa Eddie was born.

Yeh, that's right, born...not hatched, not found under a rock, born.

After an 18hr battle with my mother....and alot of gruntin' and pushin' from mom, and I mean alot...8lb 10oz worth...I finally capitulated and left the warmth of mom's womb. Upon exiting said womb, I filled the delivery room "with what seemed to be the screams of a banshee"(Mom's words). Little did mom know that that would not be the only time she would hear me release noise from the depths of my lungs...which she heard quite often over the next 19yrs, or longer.

Ya know how that "golden birthday" thing works...turn the age equal to the day of birth...well, wouldn't that work for the year of birth, also? Having been born in 1953 and turning 53...yeh, yeh, yeh, go ahead and laugh, just don't choke on anything...shouldn't that mean something? Hell, mom thought I was doin' good to make it to 21 in one piece! Oh, well, it was just a thought.

Anyway, I'm not sure what's on the agenda for today....kinda hard to ask anybody right now, I'm the only one up at the time I'm posting this. I may just screw-off all day...no football, too early for baseball, not a big Nascar fan, maybe college hoops if there's any games on...but be assured, I'll find something to screw-off at. I may not be postin' much today...takes to long to type once ya start gettin' buzzed. That reminds me, I better check the barley-pop supply.

To anyone else out there havin' a birthday...Happy Birthday and Party ON!

Happy belated birthday. Just saw you over at Tina's spot and realized I hadn't been here in a while.

I'm stealing the John Adams quote.

I have to type that in because the link goes to my other blog (non-political at least somewhat)

boogs?

Closest thing to an actual word on word verification I've seen yet. Somebody slipped up.

Ann (granny),
Thanks for the BD wish. Didn't do much of anything yesterday...everyone here is sick.

I'm stealing the John Adams quote.

Steal away, my dear.

Yeh, I've seen some words from WV that could be real words....somewhere.

Grandpa Eddie said...

Tina,
Thanks for the sweet wish, kid.
32 hmmmmm....my oldest, a daughter will turn 32 the 16th of July.

Shea,
Thanks for the wish, pal.

The other....I get that from my kids all the time. The wife tells me I'm gonna end up a narly ol' fart, sittin' on the porch in a rockin'
chair.....which ain't bad if ya throw in a shotgun.

S.A.
Thanks for the warm wishes, my friend.

Didn't do to much, everyone's been sick around here for over a week. Thanks for the nice thoughts though anyway.
