Sixty one years today, riding this big blue ball around the sun, day after day. Today has been wonderful, beautiful hoar frost all over, warm and surrounded by kids and grandkids.. Cindy is making me brownies and we will top them with home made chocolate sauce (my Mom’s recipe) and eat them with ice cream later… I have been clicking on “like” on all the posts from friends on Facebook, to where I barely had time to do much else. I am amazed at all the people who took the time to wish me a happy birthday greetings.. got a few emails from friends doing the same.

I wonder what I have learned in the past 60 years…. well…. lets see

Don’t believe a women when she tells you, “Fine”. No, things are not fine!

When a politician tells you they are there to help, don’t believe them!

When in a drought and the weatherman tells you, it might rain, don’t believe him.. if it does, it will be a wonderful surprise!

When you have a spring blizzard and your wondering if you will lose power to the electricity lines, go ahead and plan on it!

When you see an ad for something free, it will NOT be free.. oh sure, one of the items might be, but believe me, you will pay, somehow…

When dealing with an old fat man, in any kind of game, you can pretty much figure he is going to cheat to win. (just ask my grandkids!)

Thank you to all who took time out of your day to reach out to me! Makes an old guy feel kind of special!
