Even at 75 with all the aches and pains…. one can enjoy a bit of humor and irony in a birthday wish

April 21, 2021

My daughter sent me what we used to call in the Army a care package which is now for me in reality birthday gifts. I have always held that ‘we the people’ should not be dictated to by the card and gift manufactures as to when ‘we’ give them to our loved ones. I always thought a gift or card should be given when one is merited, or when we are motivated, that said my daughter has an uncanny sense to pick some fairly offbeat cards… but ones that match my slightly abnormal psyche.

The birthday card that I copied for this posting was not only different but after a week of relentless hip pain it was a much need good moment of humor that I immersed myself in. I wanted to share it with you my readers and hope that you also will at the end have that interior feeling of wellbeing and for the briefest of minutes be removed from the immoral and disrespectful world around us.


A guy your age found a frog in the woods.

Kiss me” said the frog,

“and I will turn into a beautiful Princess

and do anything you want”

The man picked up the frog and put it in his pocket.

“Hey” the frog yelled “I said I’ll do anything you want”

“Naaah” the man said, 

“at my age, I’d rather have a talking frog.”

    Glad you liked it!
    Happy Birthday Dad!!!!
    Sorry it didn’t work out that I was there to celebrate with you, soon though… we will do a belated birthday cake and the rest of your presents that I couldn’t squeeze into the shipping box, Anthony was always better at being able to utilize every millimeter of a space, remember packing my GMC Jimmy for my move from Philly to LA….. it all got in the truck, well and on top of the truck and still gave Tim in the backseat a 1′ × 2′ area for him to occupy for the entire trip. Nothing wrong with that he was only 6′ or something like that and all my stuff and all the passengers made it just fine 😎
    Love you Dad

    Excellent timing Pete as I’m trying to control some lower back / hip pain today. The chuckle was free medication. Thank you.

    Happy birthday, best wishes to you.
