Still Celebrating or Somesuch

I was home all day today. I was tired. I slept a lot. It's just how it is. However, about 9 o'clock, I was bored and felt like I needed company so I cleaned up my act and headed up to the pub. Timmy and Joe were there and, as usual, we started with their trip to the gun show (after I gave 'em hell about missing my birthday) and worked our way into a discussion about Baby Boomers. Joe who is pushing 80; me, the old boomer; and Tim, who is a young boomer at 53. They chuckled like hell to hear that I was 62 yesterday and laughed harder at my admonition that I don't look 62 and bought me a beer. Awesome dudes, huh?

Joe was thrilled because I brought him some things I found on the 'Net about an actress he likes. I have to get him on the 'Net because he didn't know that one of our local theaters offers 'closed captioning' on selected films. He's partially deaf and says that "surround sound" damn near kills him. And they were offering "Frost/ Nixon" with it. Cool, huh?

As we were talking, an old high school and college friend and her hubby popped in and sat down with us after the Rotary Club dinner (we're all regulars -- some more regular than others. LOL ). A new conversation ensued about the "joy" of Social insecurity. It was interesting and fun.

I needed that. Despite spending far too much time alone, I realized that I am and always will be a social animal. Some day I may tell you a hysterically funny story about Tim and I -- except I have to find out if he's still reading my blog. LOL!

Happy Blogging!!!!!


  1. I'm so glad you had such a lovely day with friends. I'll be looking forward to hearing your story about you and Tim. :-)

  2. Sounds like you had a nice time. Happy belated birthday. I hope you have many more. BTW, now you are as old as I am...LOL

  3. I'm glad you went out. Please tell the Tim story - he won't mind.

  4. There was a time when I had my pub buds and a lot of fun it was so much so that Cheers sure struck a chord with me.

    I think that it can be good therapy when not abused

  5. Give us the funny story about you and Tim!! I loved this post because I feel like I learned a bit more about you.

    Social insecurity...ha! :)

  6. Well, I think that's just what you needed Kay...a day out with some friends. Sometimes it's the best medicine. Cheers sweetie.

  7. good for you! and happy birthday...should i have known it was your birthday? in any case, many more! you're about 10 years younger than me. no wonder you can still go out after supper! if i had a pub like that where i could find friends like that, i'd go! often! just do it!
