Post 3107 - A Special Day

Watching the last half hour of SNL, the one that is hosted by Donald Trump. My goodness, years ago people were calling this show "Sunday Morning Fast Forward". That was back in the vcr days. Today, I suppose it would be called, "Sunday Morning Best Bits on Youtube". Sounds about right.

I went to an old friend's birthday today. His name is Ajeet and he turned 50. He threw his own birthday party, which is something I had never heard of before.

Patricia and I went and we had a great time.

We loved how someone put together the above poster, with the candy bars.

How did I meet Ajeet, anyway? Kind of a funny story. I have been in Toastmasters for a long time. He called me one night, wanting to check it out. I was suffering one of my migraines, and this was years before I discovered the pleasures of Zomig, so I all but hung up on him, asking him to call me back the next evening. Hardly an auspicious beginning.

He called me back the next night, and I told him about TM. He went to a meeting, and joined our little club, remaining for quite a few years before things pulled him away. We  had become pretty good friends, so losing touch with him hurt a bit. My fault for letting it happen.

Seeing him again today after a few years was a pleasure. I am sorry that life got away from both of us, and I hope to see him again, and soon.

And, as you can see, Patricia does, too.

Happy birthday, my friend. May you have many more.

And, Patricia, stop grabbing his ass. Okay?

See you tomorrow.
