Perry Hall Alumni Bull Roast, Paying The Price Today, and We Dropped the Ball On the Wife's Birthday

Went to the Perry Hall Alumni bull roast last night, first time for me. We had a few feet of snow, or inches, can't remember which one. Have to admit, was surprised they didn't cancel it, but glad it was on. I saw people I haven't seen in over 30 years, and some of them remembered me! I have to admit, after that many years, to see that many people, and be in the shape I am, was a little tough to do. One on one isn't bad, but to walk into a banquet hall full of people, with a cane, dragging the one leg, far shot from leading the team into the pep rally, but we soldier on.

Let me tell you, the standing, the mingle type walking, in and out of tables, killed me. Oh, and the bathrooms, they were in another part of the county. I didn't want to sit, not seeing anyone, so I kept going. I am paying for it today though. My back is in serious trouble, with or without last night. My legs, let me look, yeah, I still have legs, and they hurt like hell! Fatigue? Forget about it!

The wife's birthday was yesterday, and it was an epic fail on our part, all 3 of us, but mostly mine. Can come up with a ton of excuses, the snow kept me in the house, my back hurt, or my fav, I have MS! Long and the short, the one person in this house that should have had mountains of presents, cards from dignitaries, and even a goat sacrificed, got nothing. I need to figure out how to make it up to her, and show her I am extremely sorry. The kids will help me with whatever I come up, they will be glad to, whether they want to or not.

Yes do understand the legs, and paying for fun later. You do see that the wife needs to be recognized for another year....that is good of you to do something later!

Kim - It wasn't intentional, but no less selfish.

You could have a birthday party in the next month or so and tell her you had it planned this way all the time.Then yell,"SURPRISE"
I could send you an article that shows that one of the newly discovered symptoms of MS is severe memory loss.

You could fix a nice romantic dinner like you did on your 1st wedding anniversary

Slammer - Thanks for bringing up the debacle of the 1985 dinner, good to see people remember your shining moments!
