Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
From Kelly's Heroes (1970)
Are you sure you're not hurt ?
No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
Broke parts take a little longer, though.
From Electric Horseman (1979)
Happy birthday . At least you can look 'em square in the eye without lying the next time you demand the senior citizen discount
A guy once told me, "Do not have any attachments, do not have anything in your life you are not willing to walk out on in 30 seconds flat if you spot the heat around the corner."

Happy Birthday from me and the kid!
Have a happy one RJ

RJ, look what I got you for Christmas. It should help protect you from injuring yourself or drowning while you are cleaning the pool.

I can just see the gift opening... Oh look, it’s another bottle of wine.
But then again, it’s not just a bad gift! Happy Birthday!
Trusting a DC politician with your money is like trusting a hungry dog with a raw steak.
Now when you leave work early on Fridays you can get the early bird special at the local Bob Evan's.
I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?
The ends can justify the means.
"Growth is inevitable and desirable, but destruction of community character is not. The question is not whether your part of the world is going to change. The question is how." -- Edward T. McMahon, The Conservation Fund
People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor
"We do not need any other Tutankhamun's tomb with all its treasures. We need context. We need understanding. We need knowledge of historical events to tie them together. We don't know much. Of course we know a lot, but it is context that's missing, not treasures." - Werner Herzog, in Archaeology, March/April 2011
Happy Birthday! I hope you have a great day!
Cheers! (Sorry no wine glass emoticon... )
Happy Birthday Dude.
You get all squeezed up inside/Like the days were carved in stone/You get all wired up inside/And it's bad to be alone
You can go out, you can take a ride/And when you get out on your own/You get all smoothed out inside/And it's good to be alone
Happy Birthday! Do you qualify for the senior discount now?
"He defended the cause of the poor and needy, and so all went well. Is that not what it means to know me?" Jeremiah 22:16
HAPPY BIRTHDAY BUDDY!
Some things you can look forward to at your advanced age:
1. A colostomy bag
2. Sudden realization that wine is not a "preservative" as you had hoped
3. You'll wake up one morning and not remember how to "backwash" the pool.
4. You'll loose any interest in driving a manual transmission vehicle.
5. Your resentment at paying taxes for public schools will begin to creep into every conversation you have at public gatherings.
6. Loosing all interest in drinking water.
7. The only hair your girlfriend can run her hands through....is on your ass and back
8. You find yourself tipping less than 10% while eating out.
9. Your "so called" friends in the planning field start doing a top ten list about you each year
10. A good quote for RJ
"He is alive, but only in the sense that he can't be legally buried."
Enjoy the day "OLD MAN"......
"The modern conservative is engaged in one of man's oldest exercises in moral philosophy; that is, the search for a superior moral justification for selfishness."
John Kenneth Galbraith
Thank you to all for the good wishes…even your top 10 list, TO (I appreciate the laugh, I think ).
To paraphrase: sometimes the best-laid plans of mice and men go awry.
Because ZG won’t be here, I’m implementing Plan B:
Exit work early…trim my nose and ear hair…put on my slippers…dust off the walker...do the Friday night thing: single male, home alone (on his birthday no less), open the wine jug, enter the hot tub (being careful not to drown)…watch some pron. Did I leave anything out?
Here's wishing you a Happy Birthday and many to follow
