I was born at 3:56 am. The very first words from my drug-induced mother to reach my yet undeveloped ears was "GET THAT COLD DEAD FISH OFF MY BELLY"

Mom used to laugh like crazy when she would tell me that story. When I was a little kid I didn't think it was the least bit funny, but it brought a smile to me years later. She passed away Sept. 16, 2016, and I still think about her every day. We had good times, bad times, and a lot of funny times close to the end. She made it to 91.

Yesterday I was an old fart, today at 70, I am now officially a geezer.[:0][:D]

    Happy Birthday!

    Reminds me of the time an elderly lady was telling the wife and I about the birth of one of her children in a very lively way, especially when she got to the part about her son being the ugliest baby that you ever saw. [:D]
    What's next?

    I am older than you Jr. and no where near being a geezer. Wundudnee is older than either of us and he ain't no geezer either.

    Only hope for you is buy a Harley and join Hell's Geezers.

    Geezer is commonly used to refer to any man whose name you don??t know, as in ??I was chatting to a couple of geezers in the pub last night??. If someone is a geezer, they may also be overtly masculine and possibly a down-to-earth, plain-speaking type. The word is not synonymous with macho, however, and is roughly the equivalent of the American word dude. An England international footballer once referred to Prince William as ??a nice, relaxed geezer??. In North America, however, geezer usually refers to elderly men, as in ??I was walking down the street when this old geezer walked straight into me??.

    The origin of geezer is an interesting one. It appears to derive from the now obsolete term guiser, meaning someone who walks around in disguise, a performer in a masquerade. So a word that was used in the Middle Ages to refer to mummers (actors in traditional plays without words) has now simply come to mean bloke.

    Happy birthday you old mummer[:D]

    P.S. Being Bubba Jr. you will never be a GEEZER, because that title goes to Bubba SR. [8D][:)]
