Today is Joe’s birthday.
For those who don’t know, Joe is my spiritual advisor, and the main reason I will never ascend. (Even with the help of the ascension sling.)
I will say that in the 40 years I’ve known Joe, he has never failed to entertain or make me laugh.
The words of my AA sponsor, Polly D. come to mind when I think of Joe. She told me more than once, “Don’t worry honey, we’re not laughing with you.”
Joe, if you are reading this — Happy birthday!
We don’t have a present for you yet. I’m still stumped for ideas ever since Ken’s mom died, and we can’t pass on a three pack of Fruit of the Loom underwear for you. Oh, it used to be so easy!
But, I promise, I will dig around the house, and find something that will keep until you visit. When you get here, we will celebrate you in fine style.
Ken and I love you very much. We wish you a huge slice of hula pie and loads of attention today!
