Thanksgiving is now "Dr. John's Birthday II - The Sequel."
The Blogosphere Express is going off the rails and around the world to pick up a few friends.

Dr. John is one of the most super'est, duper'est guys on the internet and goes out of his way to make friends and connect us all together.

Today, folks - is Dr. John's birthday sequel (his real birthday was six months ago) and we're all gathering to host a huge surprise party for him over at his Fortress. See, this may just be the only way to surprise such a wise old man. =O)

Today is the perfect day for a Dr. John Comment-athon of sorts to fill his Inbox with comments from new places and new faces. All wishing him a Happy Birthday.



I met Dr. John when I first started blogging and have been inspired by him ever since. He's your typical garden variety kind of guy with a heart of gold. Enjoying Grandchildren, trips to the hobby shop, model trains and writing.

Visiting his blog is much like sitting at your Grandpa's knee as he recalls and sometimes makes up stories to either wise us up or entertain us.

*******************************

Not that he is a real bona fide Grandpa, for by his calculations he isn't a day over 65. However I have a sneaking suspicion that in his honesty, he isn't just a day over 65 - more like a few years or maybe decades.

My suspicions are based on these 13 facts of note:


1. Dr. John and his teeth don't sleep together.

2. It takes longer for Dr. John to rest than it did for him to get tired.

3. When Dr. John gets "lucky" it means he found his car in the parking lot.

4. Dr. John will search for his glasses for over a half hour only to find they were on his face the whole time.

5. There is nothing left for Dr. John to learn the hard way.

6. When Dr. John throws a party the neighbors don't even realize it.

7. Dr. John's joints are more accurate than the nightly weather man.

8. Dr. John's ears are hairier than his head.

9. Dr. John's wheel chair has more loaded options than his car.

10. Younger women hold open doors for him!

11. Caution is the only thing Dr. John cares to exercise.

12. Dr. John begins every other sentence with, "Nowadays..."

13. "Getting a little action" means Dr. John doesn't have to take a laxative.


*******************************

Please feel free to join the Dr. John's Birthday Comment-athon and visit Dr. John's Fortress and leave a comment to say Happy Birthday. Or you could say Happy Thanksgiving or even book your fare on the next Crazy Train!


Happy Birthday Dr. John!

    Marget you are a gem . Not an unflawed gem but a gem. Thanks so much for moving my birthday from May 21 to today. That means I can role back a few years off of my age.You were also wrong on the hair. I have plenty of hair on my head and no gray hairs. Though some people may cause some gray hair to appear.
    Thanks again for the party. The Fortress always loves a good party even if the date is wrong.
    I think I'll just save all the comments and run them on my blog on the 21st of May.
