Now I still prefer the tortillas made with lard to those healthy imitations. They don't fall apart when you wrap them around a plate full of meat and veggies. Nothing like a good saddle blanket sized lard tortilla con todo (with everything) to start your day off right. We don't have any around our house so I'll probably settle for a bowl of granola with vanilla flavored soy milk. They told me at the gym I didn't qualify for the senior rate. I told them AARP said I was a Senior. The owner said I had to be 78 to qualify for his Senior rate. He didn't appear to have too many 78 year olds in the gym. I hope you enjoy a wonderful day today. That's my birthday wish to you.

(Sung in a sultry whisper) "Happy birthday to youooooo, happy birthday to youoooooo, happy birthday dear Pappy, happy birthday to youooooo." That's right, long ago in a land far away Pappy was born. Now it's 16 tons and what do I get? Another day older and deeper in debt (thank you Washington). I realized it was my birthday when Borders/Waldenbooks sent me my 25% off birthday coupon. I was born in an era when I shouldn't have survived according to all the social protection agencies. Never mind that my mother is still living. People knew back then what it really took to be happy and healthy.
