In the meantime, at an undisclosed location...

I'm posting this from Duke law school, where they've threatened to depose me (or was that depants me?) for most of the day. Either way, no Photoshop fun or typewriter trivia until tomorrow.

And as Dusty has pointed out elsewhere, it is indeed my birthday.

I went to the Bayou last night, played the blues, imbibed celebratory beverages (thank you to everyone who kindly bought an old vet a drink) and got home about 2:00. It's now stupid o'clock in the ayem. A man my age should never operate anything more complicated than a coffee cup on four hours sleep. So, I'll check in on the 16th.

If I was any older, I'd be dead by now.

Again, you're all on your own. Don't break the furniture.

Happy birthday. Don't break a hip, or anything.

Congratulations old man. thought about you today, was standing in line behind a guy in the drugstore wearing a shirt that said "OLD AS DIRT." He was/is. After I paid and went to leave he was blocking the exit mumbling something about women as what I assume was his wife sitting in a big ole 4-door something was pointing at him and laughing.

Happy Birthday, David. You're not old enough to be mixing Milk of Magnesia with whiskey, are you?

Hope you had a great one.

Happy Birthday Old Man. And glad to see you're spending it at the only school in your state that matters...

Jeff,

Jenny, a UNC alum, may have to come to your house and kick your ass.

Truly. You do not lightly take sides in the great UNC/Duke rivalry.

Jeff Shelby said...

Tell Jenny I'm sorry about her unfortunate choice in universities - perhaps for grad school she could choose a school outside the state - maybe GEORGE MASON?

You are cold, Jeff Shelby. Cold.

Bon jour, monsieur Terrenoire.

Perhaps I can offer a suggestion:
# hrs sleep + # cups coffee/demitasses espresso = K, where K (consant) = 8.
Apologies for direlection of duty in aforementioned hypothetical correspondence ala escargot.
Every step must indeed be precalculated with the utmost of due diligence. Important new developments. Hasta manana,
non-hunter, but a great fan thereof. Ends do not justify nefarious means. Namaste.
PS - was it an IBM typewriter?
Ever read of the role of Hollerith punch cards in the Holocaust? Scary sh... stuff... most prefer to assertion by denial in response to this dilemma.....
K?
