Thanks to all

...for the Birthday Wishes. Blog-Poppa Harvey sent out the call, and a few that know me, and some that don't responded. Sincerely, many thanks for the kind words.

How did I spend my Birthday?

Well the better question is...How did you spend your Birthday Weekend? I actually had two day's off in a row (without bitching to get it. WOOT!). Thank Goodness, that the city of Knoxville has a Clerks Office open on Saturday, or else I'd have started today driving on an expired license. I dragged my carcass out of bed, and tried to do something with my straggly hair. I'd planned on going to the barber on friday evening, but got trapped helping out my brother in law replace a pump motor that burned out in a hotel. Didn't hit the house until after everything was closed. Clerk's office opens at ten, so it was too early to go in the morning. Ah well, I guess I'll have to make do.

The pitcher didn't turn out too bad, alhtough it does look like a mug-shot. I have a problem smiling for "Official Photographs", so they all turn out the same. Atleast it only took me 15 minutes to get it "did". That was nice. Went to my local waterring hole to visit with my favorite Beertender (the same one who expressly told me to show up, and she'd get me a big slice of cake for my b-Day) and she wasn't there! I certainly plan on letting her know how she "ruined my birthday" the next time I see her. She'll understand. Went and got my "ears lowerred", and I must say that a #4 clipper-cut does me some justice. Even though it rarely hair looks much better when it's on the short-side.

Then I went looking for a "toy" to treat myself with. I went to a couple of hobby shops in search of a radio controlled Airplane. I figgerred it would be fun to fly a miniature aircraft around the park or whatnot. After realizing what it would cost me to get something cool (around $500) I decided that I'd better look elsewhere. Went to the music shop, in hopes that I'd find a marvelous deal on a stratocaster, but was unable to justify the expenditure on same. I continued my travels, and found myself at the local Best Buy. Maybe I'd find a video game, or a CD that would please me enough that I could call it a Birthday present.

I was wanderring the aisles, until I came across a playable display. It was of a game that I'd heard about, but had never ever seen. I played "I Love Rock 'n Roll" by Joan Jett and the BlackHearts, right there in the store, and I was hooked. I immediately paid the $70 frieght on the item and carried it to the house. I've been enjoying it ever since.

I went on the Auspicious Day to visit with my Family and have a repast. The fellowship was the best part, and the meal would have made me "smack my momma" if she'd not been the one to prepare things. My Brother In Law did the cookin' and I commenced to eatin'. A grand day was this, and the gifts were more than I'd wished for.

Let's say that a good day was had by all.
