38 Years Later

"Reprobate scion of doomed Saxon clans, out of the rainy day surmised. " -
Suttree by Cormac McCarthy

Since having a blog is the internet equivalent of sporting a goatee, I might as well use the space for a big Happy Birthday To Me. This poorly scanned image of myself is from a family photo album my sister, Beth, put together and mailed to me while I was far away from home in the Army. It was the best gift I could have received. It also included a running commentray of post-it notes which were pretty funny. A mug shot of my father in a dark suit said something along the lines of "Dad (after the trial)". ( I guess you had to be there.) In lieu of flowers, pints will be accepted at the Dublin Underground at a to be determind time tonight.

That's so cute. You know how much I love old photos (you've read my blog afterall). I'll wish you a happy birthday here, seein's how I forgot to in my email and I may not be able to make it to the Dublin tonight - it being a school night and all. Have a great night and hopefully a great day off recovering tomorrow.

stay outta jail tonight.

Dexter said...

thanks and thanks for the Pho. I am new man. It is ambrosia. As Annie Savoy quoted Whitman about baseball it could apply to Pho, "It will repair our losses and be a blessing to us."

happy birthday. i will lift a bowl in your honor slurping loudly in quiet solitude with my burroughs primer comforted in knowing you did not attempt to shortchange the muse but went for the good meal that cannot be faked.
