The Most Wonderful Time of the Year... yeah, right!
So, it's my least favorite time of year... because I'm surrounded by... by.... BIRTHDAYS! Apparently my parents and other relatives back then needed to keep warm in the winter because there are about six of us in the family that have birthdays within a month of each other. And that includes a number of my nephews and a niece so that means shopping for gifts... Ugh! I've got another birthday coming up in a couple of weeks. I don't mind that I'm getting older. I still feel reasonably good, thank the Good Lord. And I know that I'm not a kid any more. But I still feel like one sometimes. I enjoy that when I can do that... I don't mean it as in calling everyone "dude" or watching MTV or something stupid like that. No, I am a guy who is pushing 47 and still loves sports in large quantities much to the chagrin of my gal pal. But she loves me anyway. I still live old school rock music and culture. I still wear cargo shorts even though I'm too dang big to be wearing them. I eat more tv dinners than home cooked meals which may have something to do with my being too dang big in the first place!
