Birthday Boy and Monday Roundup

Wow, it's been a busy week for me......and this old goat just ain't used to that. I worked this trip which kept me on completely full flights except for one for five solid days -- 13 flights, 10,392 miles since Wednesday -- my arms are sore from the flying.

Today is my honey's 45th birthday.....yes, a younger man -- cradle robber that I am (just so they're over 18...). As some of you know, he is quite the man....quick with a smile, a warm heart for people, and (seriously and truthfully) one of the nicest men you'll ever want to meet. He puts me to shame....I always tell him that he makes me look good. I woke up in the night and found the middle of his back. I let my hand rest there, quietly and gently. And a few words came to my sleepy mind for him: Peace, gentleness, health, happiness. I hope they're all his today, tomorrow....forever. I love you....and can hardly wait for you to get home so that I can whack your ass 45 times.

I witnessed an accident in front of the San Francisco International Airport last Thursday in the middle of one of my trips. We were waiting for the hotel van to pick us up and happened to remark to each other how fast the cars were driving by....way over the speed limit for as many pedestrians, luggage, and traffic there are. And, wouldn't you know it, we were staring at a crosswalk when a dude going way too fast hit an elderly Asian man in the crosswalk. He went flying through the air and landed on his side. I ran over to him....knowing he could very well be dead. He wasn't. In fact, he jumped up and brushed himself off. His wife was with him and stunned. The guy was out of his car immediately and very apologetic....but I let him have it. I was so mad I couldn't see straight. I took his picture and a picture of his license plate. Long story short, the man was bruised and bleeding and I think he'll be okay. I spoke with his wife yesterday. And the SFO Police Department has called me for a statement. I keep on thinking how we could have, literally, witnessed a death that day. And as I told the driver, "Think how your life would have changed today if you had killed this man." You just never know from moment to moment, kids.

As usual, today is Undie Monday over at Idolize and Adore Me (oops, I mean Idle Eyes and a Dormy). It's a fine tribute to stimulus packages everywhere in these troubling economic times. You won't want to miss it. Today is a workout at the gym and yoga and birthday dinner with my sweetie tonight after his return from his workday in Seattle.

A big happy birthday to Blair!

And I'm so glad you let that guy have it. Horrible. And it could have been much worse. Good for you.

Thirteen flights in that short a time period? Egads! You are the Saint of Patience. I can't handle two flights in a week's time.

As for that accident, that is not something one wants to ever be a witness to. Thank goodness you're eyes were peeled and paying attention.

Happy birthday to the hubby!

Happy birthday to Blair! That's a fetching photo of him in the shower cap. How wonderful that you have each other.

You're absolutely right about how our actions can change our life and the lives of others everyday. Glad that man wasn't seriously injurred.
