My son’s birthday is today. An outstanding man!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOUR SON!!!!!!!!!
Heh heh heh ... wicked.
Maybe Thomas and BO will split bottle...???
fUND RAISING DAY!!
I was married on Aug 4th.
I’ll never make that mistake again.
Well, I would argue that Elvis Presley’s “Hound Dog” may have been the one good thing on that list to happen on August 4.
Also born on this day, and in the same year!!!! is my niece, Patty.
Happy 49th to Patty in Seattle!
Patty is too smart to be a fan of P-BO, however. Good thing ‘cause she’s got a smart husband and three smart sons too. The oldest is old enough to vote!
obummer and rahm have been known to frequent the joint. Google Man's Country and see the connection.
And now that Michelle is out of the country (a birthday gift from her to him), we hear that obummer is coming to Chicago to help out a basketball playing buddy of his who is running for a Senate seat.
And you can bet he will be seeing his friends and lovers. It's “boy's night out” dontcha know.
