k-not today...

so, it's been a birthday!!!   goodness where do i start   i'll try and unravel it as it happened....first, i called Marsha   she backed out of goin' 2 the fair   i said no problem and headed out the door goin' by myself   my adventure there was to take photos anyways   i got there early and good parkin'   but half the vendors weren't even open    so i just strolled toward the "barns" where the horses and other animals were   along the way i saw old antique cars   kewl more photos   anyways, i took a few photos of a horse before i realized i hadn't put my camera on auto focus  due to my cataract, those photos were all blurry, so i deleted them   i took a couple photos in the barn  they didn't turn out because i hadn't the camera on auto for the flash to pop up  Goodness  alas i get it all set right for the day=all auto   after taking photos of the antique cars and a few of the animals for pettin', the battery dies   i said OK, today's not the day for the fair   no Marsha   no Madison  and no photos-Oi!!!   i did have my funnel cake but it reminded me of how expensive the fair can be   i ate the whole damn thing   every last crumb for my $6, plus $3 for a bottle water  goodness   anyways, so i decide to head home   stop and get some dog food and bird feed   i'm goin home to watch football and call it a day   i'll cancel my dinner date(which i did) and just chill   but i wanted a football jersey to wear for the day  so i stopped at Target and purchased one   just wanted to be really chilled out bummin' for the day...

so i arrived home   there's a birthday package outside my door   o yes, i forgot Maggie wanted to hook up with me for my birthday card   well she dropped off a package   the card said "i hope u can use this"   i open it up and guess what was in it....a New Mexico football jersey   cotton tee with KAREBEAR on the back   boy did she have esp or what  it also happened to be the same shirt i saw not long ago somewhere that i liked  like i said..esp...anyways i call her and thanked her   she then brings over a plate of food from her party she had, plus a half gallon of Blue Bunny Vanilla ice cream AND home made fudge syrup-she made this herself   so i had a wonderful lunch and hot fudge sundae  delicious!  (and of course as usual she shows up at my place when it's at its worse).....it's all good (i got this sayin from her)...

so movin right along, it's 4pm   MY SON CALLS ME!!!!   this is a miracle in itself   it is also his birthday today too   transpose the last 2digits of the year of my birth, then you have the year of his birth   i know eerie, but kewl to say the least   we talked for a good 15mins   that's long in comparison when we usually talk   they celebrated his birthday last night BUT, they also celebrated his wife being pregnant   they just found out   I'M GOIN' 2 BE A GRANDMA!!!   what great news!  i'm ecstatic!   he did also let me know when he leaves for sure for Iraq in October  he's tryin to delay it a few days so he can celebrate his wife's birthday with her   i hope he gets it....

so as the day has gone by me watchin football, first my Bears happened to be on after all when i got home (which they lost on turnovers)  i then watched Denver Broncos (my second team) play and win, almost losing on turnovers   so i'm thinking, it's a pretty chilled day   happy i rested   so i then proceed to go back to Target to exchange the football jersey i bought earlier  i wasn't even a block down the road when Jesse called again   so he says "like are we doin' this dinner tonite or what"   remember, i called and cancelled it on him...anyways with his good spirit and harassing me, i said yes what time do i pick u up....moving time forward...so we decided to sit at the bar while waiting on a sit  in turn deciding to just eat at the bar   he starts tellin' me his stories again which i enjoy   i had ordered the Lobster and Shrimp dinner   the lobster was gone and all but 4 shrimp were gone when just as i'm about to bite into a shrimp, he begins his story of a job he had of bitin' chicken heads off   needless to say i didn't take a bite...lol....i couldn't believe my ears   being in the military and traveling a bit, i've heard stories   stories i wouldn't repeat  but i've never heard of this type job   it was a show and he got paid big bucks per chicken head   i still can't get over it, but he had me rollin in tears again tonite   he told me i'm in the lightweight hall of fame becaue i only had half a beer  (i was drivin' and i wasn't takin any chances with my meds and alcohol)   but anyways he had me rollin   on the way home after droppin him off i found myself sittin at a green light thinkin about them chicken heads  God!!!....anyways, i had a great time with him tonite   he picked up the tab, but i insisted on the tip   his company for my birthday was all i was seekin'   he ate heartedly again tonite   i was happy to see that   i'll be askin' him for another meal, but this time it's my treat   as he told me tonite before we went out,  "ya don't know if you're goin' to be around for your next birthday, so you just gotta go out"   he's right   live like there's no tomorrow   live like you were dyin'   ......

p.s. i did get a few photos at the fair   as soon as my battery charges, i'll download them and share

Thank you God for a wonderful day and a wonderful guy like Jesse and wonderful friends that i have here in New Mexico and all over j-land!!!
