Another trip around the sun.

Sixty years ago today, I entered this world at Nellis AFB, Las Vegas, Nevada.  Where the hell did the time go?
I was hoping to post before now, but I was feeling quite run down, and I had an aching in my lower jaw in back, which got progressively worse.  Wednesday I was able to get into the dentist, where I found that I had a bigass abscess that had to be cut into and drained.  The last couple of days I have been doped with pain killers, taking antibiotics, and feeling like someone hit me repeatedly upside the head and jaw with a cricket bat.  Hope it gets better soon, I'd like to do at least a little bit of celebrating this weekend.  Right now I am having trouble eating anything that takes much chewing, so a steak dinner is off the books for now.


Hopefully Congress will get a clue from the protests against SOPA and PIPA and drop them.  If they don't, the people need to remind them when election time comes around again.


Wanted to do more writing, but I'm in a bit of a fog right now from analgesics and lack of sleep.  Just the little jottings I did today made me feel like I have just finished rewriting War and Peace  Any ranting will have to wait until I'm feeling a little better.  Right now I'm too tired to be pissed off at anyone.

Happy Birthday, Bob.

I hit my decade-six last month.

Gettin' old sucks, but it's better than the alternative...

Happy B day Bob.
Fuck I am 58 and is just starting to enjoy my early adulthood.
I am hitting 200,000 visits in the next 20 hours or so.
If you’re no is no 200,000 I will spend a whole post slagging you and why you should not be the next president. Now that is worth more than 200,000 of Sierra Leone, leones.
So as they say in Chicago and Freetown, visit soon and visit again and again.

doubletrouble: thanks for dropping by; you're right about getting old.

KeesKennis: Thanks for dropping by , Kees. 200,000? Hell, I haven't even hit 40,000 yet. As to why I shouldn't be president, I have to quote one of my favorite writers:

"It is inaccurate to say that I hate everything. I am strongly in favor of common sense, common honesty, and common decency. This makes me forever ineligible for public office."
- H. L. Mencken

Ta for the comment Bob
So forget about honesty and decency and vote for Newt.

Happy Birthday, and keep an eye on the abscess. Some of those things can lead to cardiac complications.

BobG said...

KeesKennis: since when did decency and honesty have a place in politics?

MauserMedic: thanks for dropping by.
I've been taking antibiotics and it is pretty well gone now, but while it was raging my whole body was feeling it.

James Higham said...

Well Happy Birthday, young man!

Bob S. said...

Happy Birthday Sir.

BobG said...

James Higham: always glad to hear from you, James.

Bob S: thanks for dropping by.

Happy Belated Birthday to you Bob!!

Some good tunes posted there :)

I am remiss for stopping by for some reason your blog stays at the bottom of my blogroll even when you put up a post. I have my settings set to show the most recent updated posts?

Anyway, thanks for stopping by and commenting when you do and I hope you had a great Birthday!

Best Regards,

Pissed: I actually had a terrible birthday (sick the whole time), but I appreciate the good wishes.

PISSED said...

That stinks :( I hope you are feeling better and sooner or later you can get your steak! :)
