It’s Official, I’m A Cranky Old Geezer Now

I can feel the orneriness intensifying as I type.

The Big Six Oh rolled over officially as I was typing this sentence.

2:10 A.M., January 31st, 1960.

Damn that was a long time ago now.

I just got off of work, walked in the door, heated up a burrito, sat down to type this out and my cat jumped up in my lap.

Just like every other work night.

I have shit to do when I get up like go get a haircut and a beard trim to make The Wifely Unit happy.

I might do a little running around after that but when I get home there ain’t nothing planned that I am aware of so I am hoping to check in and then go hide out in the garage.

That probably won’t happen but if there is the slightest opportunity that’s where I’m headed.

So have at it with the old fart jokes and comments and I’ll see all y’all in the morning.

  1. Happy Birthday Fucker !! :^) Hope your day and weekend goes smoothly.

    I’m not too far behind, turned 57 earlier this month so no joking on age. They say its just a number, but damn, I don’t remember math hurting so much . . .

  2. Well then, congratulations “young un”. Go do some of the things you want to do as a self treat, I mean really, who can deny that on ones birthday?

    Aches and pains side, age is really a mental attitude. I try to make 5 year olds look down in shame, much to the chagrin of ye wifey unit. Besides, every morning you wake up is so much better than the alternative.

  6. Happy Birthday, Phil!

    I got a few years on you, but the biggest difference is that when I was just about to turn 62, my company offered me an early retirement package and I took it. I recommend retirement to everyone.

  7. Happy Birthday Phil. I’ve got three years on you and in addition to the aches,
    pains, and creaky knees, and health issues on top of disabilities. I don’t know
    how close to retirement you are but it is both a blessing and a curse. When the
    time comes, my advice would be to keep busy with your never-ending projects.
    When hard-working fuckers like us go cold turkey, that is when the downhill
    slide kicks into ludicrous speed.
