December 19, 2007 Bonus Blog Post
Got a couple Birthday greetings and words of advice. First the advice:

"Don't let yourself forget what it's like to be sixteen."
—Carole Compton Glenn

"When people ask how old you are, say, 'I'm almost sixty."
—Daniel Harshberger

Ha. Like Roger Maris, I just hit sixty-one (and without any Barry Bonds-style artificial enhancement, although I have bulked out in recent years).

Rock Around The Frock?
"BBB Having hard time getting thru to your blog. Happy Birthday!!!!!! I don't know how old you are, but I remember you telling me when you were a kid in Iowa, you use to watch Dick Clark's first show: 'Colonial Bandstand'. Merry Christmas also. Santa Claus-out!"
—Minnesota Mike

Pony Up Old Man
"Happy birthday to you—the best friend any kid from Kingman could ever hope to have. Hope your headache(s) go(es) away and that you get some chicken fried steak for dinner. I sent Kathy an e-mail yesterday, telling her that Linda and I would be glad to make a modest contribution to the Buddy Boze Hatkiller pony fund. You realize, I hope, that she is actually much funnier than you. :-)"
—Charlie Waters

FYI: both Charlie and Dan Harshberger just turned sixty, so they can't use the "almost" line. Ha.

Yes, I'm taking the afternoon off and my "funnier" wife is making me my fave dish— chicken-fried-steak for dinner. My daughter Deena, and her beau Frank are coming out. Makes me feel kind of famous. Gee, I wonder what Waldo has to say about that?

"Fame is proof that people are gullible."
—Ralph Waldo Emerson
