The Kid Grows Older

So, according to his student Todd, Bobbe the Kid is forty years old yesterday. Put it on your calendar.

Forty. 

You know, he doesn't look a day over sixty.

Happy birthday, Kid. When you get back into shape, you can come kick my ass. Or at least try ...

Consider it a date, you crusty bastard.

Your ass.

My foot.

Oh, oh, oh It's magic!

Here's something that will make your day, Kid -- you know those manly, buff pictures I sometimes put up here to make you feel insecure? Well, it turns out a local writers organization is doing one of those local-writers-show-a-little-skin calendars to raise money.

Guess who got invited to be Mr. August ...

You're bullshitting me. Oh God, now I need to gouge my eyes out...

Medical Update, for those who don't click on the links:

Bobbe is undergoing conservative medical treatment -- if you can call steroid injections directly into the spine such -- along with PT. Thus far, there has been little or no improvement, but that's how the medical establishment rolls, and he'll have to go through this and see that it doesn't work before they will cut.

At least he is in the system and going in the right general direction, albeit on a slow boat.

Well, might not be August -- they are still fiddling with the order, but naked-R-us. I believe we are going to do something martial -- me, holding a big knife or something.

A *really* big knife, uh, strategically-placed ...

Irene said...

Ya wanna borrow my knife, Steve?

Steve Perry said...

Nah, Irene, I'm thinking I need a pair of Chinese butterfly knives. Or a broadsword ...
