Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

Happy Birthday, 10 wheels!

I'd tell you to go ride your age today, but that'd cut down on your miles.

Took wife for a colonostomey this AM.
She said that was my present.
Fire alarm went off at the clinic.
Everyone, including patients had to evacuate.
Then a heavy thunderstorm hit.
Now the sun is out.
Wife is sleeping.

Will take off when she wakes.
