|From my dear friend, The Florida Flyer|
(With apologies, of course, to Messrs McCartney and Lennon.)Now that I'm older lost all my hair,Those many years are now.No one's sending me a ValentineHave to buy my own bottle of wine.
So as many of you may have surmised from Juvat's Monday post, Monday instant, the 8th of May, was my natal day. Upon which I completed my 64th circuit around the Sun and began lap 65.
Of course, the 8th of May is also VE Day. (Victory in Europe for those who dinna ken. 'Tis the day in 1945 that Les Boches surrendered to the Allied Powers in Europe). It's also Harry Truman's birthday. Nice fellow for a Democrat, has a carrier named after him, fought in the Great War he did, as an artillery officer. Fun fact, as The WSO likes to say.
At any rate, with The Missus Herself still forward deployed to the western portion of the OAFS Empire, it was a quiet natal day. Which I decided late Sunday night to take off from work. As I'm binge watching HBO's Rome it seemed the thing to do, squeeze in one more episode before retiring for the evening. Which turned into two.
Damn you, Titus Pullo.
Anyhoo (as Juvat likes to say, tee hee), it was a quiet and relaxing Monday. Very quiet in the neighborhood, which puzzled me until I remembered that everyone else was at work. Yes, I felt a little guilty. Mind you, only a little.
It was just me and the cats. Wow, did we go crazy. Not.
Slept late, did the blog reading, did the Facebook thing. Read a book. That's about it.
The Olde Vermonter sent me this...
That's our kid brother, The Musician. Now does his nom de blog make sense?
Boy plays a mean guitar...
In other news, the Russians are back. Apparently they were upset that the Lithuanians got all that attention. Russki spambots, they're like skeeters in the summer. Annoying as hell.
There will be another Tuna post upon the morrow. Seems the blogging fever has him in its grips. Or perhaps he means to give the old guy (moi) a break. I don't mind, not at all. Tuna has good stuff.
See you on Thursday, I think. (And hope.)
