Happy 65th!

by Phil Gibson

For my 65th birthday, my daughter and son in law asked me to come over so that they could take me out to dinner. When I got to their house, they asked me in. I noticed that the door to the kitchen was closed. They gave me a card and a gift. The card was my favorite type of card. On the front was a picture of a bull dog, with the caption, “It's official.” I opened the card and it said, “You're old as poop!” I showed the card around and we all got a good laugh.

As I unwrapped the gift I could see that it was something made of pink nylon webbing. What, I wondered, could they have possibly found for me that was pink nylon webbing. Before I finished opening the gift, my daughter opened the kitchen door. Out came bounding a beautiful fawn colored eight week old Pit Bull puppy. She ran across the crowded room directly to me, passing my daughter, son-in-law, grandson, granddaughter, their miniature Doberman and my wife. The puppy jumped in my lap. Everyone laughed as the puppy licked my face. We made a good pair! Instead of going out for dinner, we ordered pizza and stayed with the puppy.
