10 May

Well, today is my birthday and it marks my 21 thousandth 100 and 85th day (who’s counting?) alive on the planet Earth (where else?) I’ve even accounted for leap days…and there have been 15 of them since 1955.

Funny how we like to count things. Remember when you were little and counting things actually was a good way to spend your time? Ah, those were the days.

I try to count my blessings now although in a world where complaining has become a national pastime and several (if not most) television programs it isn’t always easy to remember to do.

When one considers that I could have been born anywhere and at any time and to anyone, (any 2) I really hit the trifecta 58 years ago…hopefully my string of relatively good luck (no need to be overly conceited now is there?) continues.

And to everyone who reads this…thanks for the visit. Smile, have a great day and enjoy the possibilities of what still may come!… (and the improbable remarkableness of what has passed)

    Happy Birthday! I am only a few months ahead of you, as I am bracing for 59 in just a few short months. Like you, I have counted the days that I have been riding around on this planet, and even though I have more days behind me than I have ahead of me, I am still enjoying the ride.

    Happy Birthday, fellow Taurus. You can go ahead and count for the both of us. I’ll work on the un-counting. More seriously, I hope you had a great day!

    Happy birthday! I always enjoy your blogs! I liked your comment about complaining becoming a national past time, just as i read that comment, the tv asked the question if jodi arias was the new most hated woman? Lol, do we really vote on such things…seems wrong if you ask me.

    🙂 You have me beat by 2.5 years. That means I’ll have to continue to give you great respect!

    You may find this funny ( or think I’m intellectualy challenged), but I just asked my wife Francis to explain the title of your blog. She said “he’s a teacher Bruce. . . it’s a play on words . . a clever one”

    Thank God (or the godess) for the woman of the world!!

    keep up the good work.
