Babbling 'bout a Birthday and a Blogiversary
As the day went on I enjoyed best wishes from my coworkers and friends. And Facebook....... holy moly Facebook! If you ever have a complex, just change your birthday on Facebook and you will be showered with comments beyond your wildest dreams! I made it a point to personally comment on each birthday wish instead of doing the mass status update. Folks took time for me. I feel it fitting to take time for them too. Even if it's just a few strokes of the keypad. Superstar for a day! Made me feel special! LOL!
The afternoon was brightened as one of my coworkers and I got into a conversation about Jerry Clower. What a genius he was. It got me fired up so I hit up a few classics on the way home. I always cackle no matter how many times I hear him. Shoot up in here amongst us! One of us has got to have some relief!
When I got home my mom, dad, brother and his GF came over to enjoy dinner and an ice cream cake with us. I enjoyed having them over. The boys enjoyed a crowd at the house too. They got to show off a little bit ;)
In the middle of the birthday frivolity I remembered that it's been right at a year since I started "Back 'er Down." I mentioned in my very first post that this is a blog that I would truly enjoy even if it wasn't read by a single person. That turned out to be true! I think it's helped keep me grounded, focused and honest. Looking back I've found that I have had some successes and that I still have some work to do in other areas. Thanks to the magic of Facebook, some other bloggers, a few fellow Kurt Busch fans and a lot of friends I actually have a good little following for this parcel of the Blogosphere too! That's a nice added bonus. Y'all keep reading and help keep me straight. Okay?
Y'all take it easy,
