The mating game

In 1983 my Mother passed away on July 19, Mother terminated two days prior to her 86TH birthday. Frighteningly enough today I have reached that same pinnacle my 86Th birthday being on Monday July 16 but as yet have not become deceased. Hopefully I shall continue to create a new longevity record being the patriarch of my family and including my siblings who have already become extinct. Being a cancerian who has already defeated Cancer in 1992, I am now on the verge of beating another one, but I really feel OK. Beside my mother and myself, my father was also a cancerian and so is my Wife and two of our five sons one whose first wife was of exact identical age also their daughter was a cancerian and there are more; in fact 38% of my known relatives are Cancerians. Two of my sons squeaked past and become LEO's So it would seem that in the main, Autumn or Fall would be the mating season for most of us. this would not be true being that some were hatched in the U/K some in Australia also in Singapore and even one made in Hong Kong. The family is Caucasian, Anglo Saxon type Bits - to get the picture straight. straight in the saddle nothing off centre. Maybe the first atom bomb test anniversary July 16 1945 and the Apollo 11 moon thingy lift off July 16 1969 BST had some quirky influence, but not Mohammad's flight from Mecca to Medina 16-7-622, The cancellation of M's flight would have been a blessing in disguise. Back soon... Remember when you get to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on. Vest.

Fuck, no way do I want to make it to 86.

Vest said...

BBC: Hi Billy. As from today you will have one hour deducted from your ETD on each occasion you utter the "F" Word. That should hurry you on a fair bit.
Thanks for calling.

Hello aqain. "call" is an interesting word. How many cards do you hold?

Davoh said...

Davoh said...

Davoh said...

Davoh said...

Whaddya mean - ETD. That, from my point of view, is 'estimated time of departure'.

Am i allowed an ETA?

Davoh said...

Um, apparently it's easier to comment on Womby's drivel .... heh.

Davoh said...

Yer, well .. can't "call" on a hand with too many Aces, Kings, Jacks and Queens .... won't 'fold'; just sit and wait.

Vest said...

Davoh Thank you for your multiple calls.
Dun fink I have any more cards to play; none up my sleeve either.
