"My BIrthday and other days that suck....."

Well, I've been away, cause I'm not very good company right now. Where shall I begin? It started out great. I was woke up by the meowing of one of the stray cats. Dumbo walked into the house through the back door, got scarced, and tried to go through the front door. He finally got out, and that lady and gentlemen, was the high point of my B-Day. After that, I got up and my brother informed me the kitchen ceiling light fixtures switch had burned out. The fixture is a ranch type wagon wheel with 3 light bulb sockets. 30 years ago, it cost over $200. Well, I called our electrician friend, sparkey, and left a message. About 4PM, sparkey came over, got a cup of coffee, and .....turned the TV on. He's one of those people who state, I won't pay for TV... Yeah, right. Its ok if I do, but not him. He watches tv at our house, not his. At this time, he takes off to go to Lowes or Home Depot to get a switch, I think. My brothers friend, who did all that work for us this past summer, came over and took me to Lowes. He had to pick up some stuff for a project he is working on. I made up an excuse to go with him so I could have him pick out his Christmas present. Dont ask me how this was supposed to work, I hadn't thought it out that far. Well, seems he didn't want what I thought he needed. He wanted a battery powered Skill saw. Ok..So I got him a kit with 3 other gizmos included. Im feeling great at about this time. I get home, and presto. for the first time in over half a century, I didn't get a Birthday card. and ....nobody got me anything....ok..... Its a time to celebrate my birthday, not blow up my head, right. Well, I go into the kitchen, and another presto. the $200.00 light fixture has been taken down and thrown out, and replaced with a $9.95 ceiling light, that holds no higher than 2 60 watt bulbs... That was the straw that broke the camels back. So, I spent most of my birthday pissed off, and looking for a switch and cabel to re-hang the old, but working fixture. I was just livid.....

But today, I was woke up by Santa Claus's wife. Seems they have this 5 year old Samoyed female dog, that some idiot is going to put to sleep, cause, "I dont want it anymore". So I said, sure. I'll try it out. I say try it out, cause you never know if these things are going to work out or not.
oh, why this is so special, is that to close out my Birthday , I spread my last samoyeds ashes over the backyard that he liked so much. Its taken me from April to now to be able to do that.
Birthday gift? I ordered Evangelion Neon, the complete set, for $39.95 from The Rightstuf. Its on sale.
Things have a way of working out.
and thank you all who here, on LiveJournal, wished me a Happy Birthday. You were the only ones who did.
( ok, my neighbor lady got me a spoodgebob square pants memo note taker for the refer....)
