A Stellar Weekend: How Was Yours?

Hey, guys!

I know, I skipped last Monday. I think it was a holiday and I was off somewhere, I don't even remember. Truth be told, I was probably on my cushion imagining all sorts of things. That's how I roll.

So, anyway, I want to tell you about my birthday. Now, you wouldn't think it would make biblical history, but I managed to have a celebration party amongst the Man and his disciples. Between you and me, I don't know how He can stand having them around. They're rowdy. Rude, and incapable of feeling other than for themselves. I don't have to tell you. Talk about "friends in low places!" I apologize for the fuzziness of the photo. Cameras weren't that good back then.


This was after I blew out the candle, my wish being they would all disappear in a puff of smoke, but it didn't happen. I wanted the good Lord all to myself, but I guess it was not to be.

I might have had a birthday disappointment, but friends on Facebook, in the rectory and the rest of the parish more than made up for it with their good wishes. I turned 10, a milestone they tell me. Gettin' to be an old man, but I couldn't be happier.

So, if you have a birthday coming up at some point, have a blast, gather all your friends and loved ones around, and enjoy special treats. Just don't invite any disciples!

Your crusty old soul,
Tom

Oh.My.Word!
Always a bummer not to get one's wishes, though...

Mom has one coming up very soon. But I think she's not hanging around.

Happy tenth! I have seen some parties before but none quite like this one. Glad no one started dancing on the table!

That looked like quite the party, but they seemed to wrapped up in their own celebrating instead of helping you to celebrate.

Well that looks like quite the birthday gathering. Dad's got one coming up in less than a month, but I don't think there'll be anything like that going on. He and mom don't know that many people, never mind they don't like crowds.

Belated Happy Birthday. I don't think you want the Lord to yourself cos that would mean you're d-e-d.
