Honest, Abe?

This should show you how distracted I've been lately.

A few days ago, I saw an article online mentioning how this year is the 200th anniversary of Abraham Lincoln's birth, and I briefly thought, "Hey, I should see when his exact date of birth was, so I can post about it on my 'Lair of the Silver Fox' blog."

Immediately after thinking that, I said to myself, "Abraham Lincoln's exact date of birth? DUH! That would probably be February 12th, the holiday we called "Lincoln's Birthday" all through your so-called formative years, you freakin' dummy!"

Hell, not only did I suffer that mental lapse, but it took me a few more seconds to realize that I'd already done a 200th birthday post about ol' Honest Abe!

Damn that Alzheimer's.

Thanks for your... your... ummm... I forget.


  1. LOL! I remember that one but good to re-read it again, thanks :)

  2. Hmmmm... We may need to change your medication.

  3. lol. heard the palm to the forehead from here...happens to the best of us silver fox.

  4. I have more and more of those "duh" moments myself.

    I'm a huge Lincoln fan, so I don't mind celebrating his birthday again.

  5. mmm... I'm beginning to get a few of those 'senior' moments too :)

  6. New research shows that 28 alcoholic bevvies a week helps prevent alzheimers. Doesn't do much for your liver but you'll remember shit!

  7. Maybe too much food in cans? You know what they say about too much aluminum! :) LOL!

    I didn't read it the first time, so it was a new one for me!
