Sharing A Chuckle

As you know, I blew off celebrating my birthday yesterday to attend the most recent Charter Committee meeting.  The good part of that decision was I got to see Ernesto Munoz at his best.  The worst part was I got to share watching Tea Party Tom Pollitt try to keep up with the proceedings and articulate something coming straight from his own head and not from a prepared script by the leaders of my Republican Party!  Talk about painful!

However, just before I departed for City Hall yesterday afternoon I collected our mail and found a wonderful birthday card from a couple who have been life-long friends - she caught the bouquet at our wedding and they married a year later.

I won't share the inscriptions they each wrote, but I cannot help myself with the cover of the card.  It's a nearly decade-old New Yorker cartoon by Alex Gregory and my friends just couldn't wait to mail it to me.  You'll understand as I share it with you below.  I know all of you will smile, too.

Happy Birthday To Me...

Stop the war on Pollitt!

He's just a little behind the times. Lots of people in Costa Mesa make their own clothes from tree bark, wear three-cornered hats, and ride a horse around town.

Pollitt is painful to listen to at times. I rank him almost as bad as Wendy Leece except that Pollitt does not really argue and try to put people down as does Leece. Both are unwatchable.
