Warhol's Birthday: Phase 4

Possibly, you heard....
Today, is Warhol's 41st Birthday.
Last year, I declared he would stomp all over 40.
And he did.
He picked himself up, dusted himself off, tripped a few more times on a Jerkbump, stumbled a little, smacked face-first into the ground and then slowly but surely found his footing. His light dimmed but he was determined to 'spark' it back up with Gusto. For many years, he has painted our community with smiles and recently.... he remembered to paint himself a few.
Warhol-
You have been my brother-in-law for years.
Over the past 12 months, you became my friend.
I am grateful.

(Obviously, because I never eVa! would have pulled this blog cr@p on you, before.)


Stay Cool, Warhol. Which shouldn't be hard,
with that T-shirt.

I don't know where I'm goin
but I sure know where I've been
hanging on the promises in songs of yesterday.
An' I've made up my mind,
I ain't wasting no more time
but here I go again, on my own.


With your family and friends, you were never alone.
Here's to wasting no more time, ProudofyouHol.
Happy Birthday, to my Friend.

I am a very lucky person, because in my life family and friends are the same thing. Thank You...cant say I'll keep my mouth shut...but I may be speechless for a bit.

I agree, Sweetbreads. Look how handsome Warhol is in that picture!

Happy birthday to you, my favorite artist and the first of The General's relatives to ever enter my bedroom. Hope your day was everything you wanted it to be!

Happy birthday older Brohol!! Hope you are having a great day and continue into the weekend!! You make the 40's look not so bad. It's great to see you "shine" again! Especially when you are sooo funny on the porch! Love you!!!

Happy birthday Big Brother! You make every day brighter just by being you! You make my heart happy, and am thankful to be your 'sis'.
Side note: after today's unexpected present drop off, I probably won't look you or Sweetbreads in the eye for a while
