BS: Curmudgeon Survives Another Birthday

Well, at least he will have by the time he gets home from The Press Room.

Mudcat was down this morning and I was waaaay too busy at work to do this earlier.

This is the first birthday he's had in years that didn't fall in the middle of the Portsmouth Maritime Folk Festival. He didn't have a chance, though, to just do what he wanted to today, but at least we had a chance to get together for a seafood lunch overlooking Great Bay. (Ten bucks off on your B.D.)

I just hope he comes through the day without anyone singing that horrible "Happy Birthday" doggeral he hates at him -- that would be a merciful gift for a wonderful singer and musical historian.

Birthdays and airplane landing have one thing in common: Anyone you walk away from was a good 'un...

Happy B-Day, Cur-mud....

Happy birthday Tom, I too will be one year older by the time we meet again at the Getaway, where we can have a joint re-celebration.
BTW there do seem to be a lot of Mudcat birthdays around at this time.

Happy Birthyesterday Tom!!!!!!!!!!! So. What did you get for him, Linn? I mean, besides the $10 off lunch and not singing HB to him?

Gnu -- 4 boxed sets (14 tapes) of the Sharpe's PBS series. Presented in a battered French knapsack, which was thrown in when I scored these tapes (and more !) at a yardsale earlier this summer.

I do most of my gift shopping (and most other shopping) at yardsales -- stuff to enhance our lifestyle without spending much money, stuff to resell, cool stuff to give to friends and family without breaking the bank.

We both had pretty full days yesterday, so he found the knapsack (and another card) on his chair this morning after he relinquished his spot at the computer.

Gotta go insulate the cat and feed Tom his scrambled eggs and cream cheese. We've got a busy day (and weekend) ahead shovelling out the house in anticipation of fore and aft Getaway stayovers.

Happy birthday Tom! You might like to try the after-birthday here. Giok has this theory about freezing it, so that if you lose it in an accident, you can clone it later.

I figure if you keep cloning your birthday, you will stay the same age indefinitely - and if you clone it more often than once a year, we can keep Joe Offer very very busy :-)

Insulate the cat = give our diabetic cat, Mortimer, his insulin injection after his first measured high protein meal of the day. We'd rather insulate him than have him be mortified.

Awwww... I gave Cheucie her insulin every morning for over two years. Odd how they get used to it and seem to know you are doing it for them and that you dislike it too. I miss her by times. She was a lady, that one. Give Mort a good scratch for me.

I'd rather be Morti-fied myself! [And I don't mean Mortimer the cat either!]

Tom, I had no idea that you were another Libra! I should've guessed.
And I had no idea that the Portsmouth Maritime gig was an
unspoken birthday party for you. Well, I hope you had a good sing
at the Press Room this year. I'll sing one for you on my birthday
(also Kevin's) next week on the 5th.

Cheers, Pamela
