Friday Flash 55.......



OK, Mr. Haynes, hop up on the table and show me your butt.
And I promise NOT to say.... Oh My!
(Squeezes... Probes... Picks)
Does this hurt?
This?
How bout this?
Well...Since you're feeling better.
And the antibiotics seem to be working...
Lets schedule the surgery for about 3-4 weeks from now...
Happy Birthday!!


Are you kidding me? This was THE best present that I ever received!
Yes, the meds are working wonders. And I will indeed have to go to the hospital in a few weeks and have things surgically repaired. But I'll be better prepared for it than I was today, thats for sure!
I have to say that because of everyone's prayers and well wishes, this milestone (60) birthday was was of my best ever! Thank you all from the bottom of my heart..
I haven't been able to sit in front of a computer for very long lately, so I have been MIA this week. But I can absolutely assure you that all of your 55's will be answered, and all of you that left well wishes and birthday greetings will be visited by me and thanked personally

If you or anyone you know has written a Friday Flash 55...
Please come tell The G-Man.
I will visit, read, enjoy, comment....Then BOOK!
So from the oldest host from coast to coast...
Have a Kick Ass Week-End!!!!!!!!

Love you MAN!

Alice Audrey said...

I'm glad you're feeling well in spite of it all.

My 55 is here.

Prayer Girl said...

I have been remiss in reading all the blogs I like to read this week so I just found out about your situation. I will pray now for a continuing speedy recovery and successful surgery in the coming weeks.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I see why the postponing of the surgery was a great birthday present.

I'll be posting my 55 around 10 p.m.

Chef Kar said...

Happy to hear that you are feeling better Galen. Hope you get a chance to enjoy all of your Birthday cheer.

I'm up ~ enjoy :-)

Happy Birthday Galen

Mojo said...

Since nobody told me today was your birthday until it was too late to get Tonka to bake a cake, I compensated with not one, but
two 55's this week. One in honor of this milestone of yours.

Next year -- cake. I sweartagad. Maybe a few honeys too. I'm pretty sure I can get MZ over here for this. Probably Susie ji too. And Lime. Wouldn't be a party without Lime, yeah?

Get better there pard, and take your time gettin' around. You're at the age now where people have to make allowances. (There's gotta be a few perks to this aging process, right?)

Felicitas said...

Happy happy birthday, Galen! I just hope you're feeling better so that you can enjoy it at least a little. Hope your family spoils you!

I'm not likely to produce a 55 this week 'cause I'm out of town, but I promise to make up for it next Friday. Your's is hilarious, as always!

Dianne said...

Happy birthday, I'll let you know if I 55!

Happy Birthday Galen

Felicitas said...

Okay, I couldn't help myself... especially given the occasion. Check out my 55; I think you'll like it.

P.S. As I'll be oot and aboot this weekend, and having far too much fun in NYC, I apologize in advance for be late to visiting & commenting on everyone's posts.

smarmoofus said...

Ouch, G-man! I hope you feel better very soon. *shudder* And happy birthday. I'm sorry I didn't know about it sooner. (Your birthday, I mean... I could've done without the TMI.)

My 55 is finally up!

barman said...

I am glad you are feeling better and got a temporary pardon from the governor, I mean doctor. Now you will get a little while to prepare. That was a wonderful birthday present for sure. Best wishes with you surgery.

big Jenn said...

I'll be glad NOT to hear about your butt anymore Birthday boy. My 55 is up. Have a kick in the head weekend! jeNN

ivan said...

Hi Galen, and get well!

Hope you have enough energy left to have a gander at my first 55 fer ya, though I cheated a bit and recycled something old of mine to resemble a 55.
Would you take a used poem from this man?
Happy Birtday anyway. And don't forget to cough.
Oboy. Aren't things a pain in the butt sometimes.
Says Aristotle, "A cock to Hephaestes , the god of healing"...Egad, do I want to go there?

Dianne said...

anthonynorth said...

Happy Birthday and good luck with the treatment. Hope it all goes well.

You'll find mine here.

the walking man said...

Does this mean I have to take my 55 down? Naaaahhhh it wasn't about your butt.

I am kinda jealous though...I wasn't able to escape my surgery..."No Mr. Durfee, we have to cut you to stop you from being an asshole."

Another botched surgery as we all well know.

Lynn said...

That picture was priceless. I am glad that is a sight you *didn't* have to see on your birthday. Hope it was great.

Hootin' Anni said...

You finally caught up with me...in age that is!! Happy Belated Birthday...I had read about your 'special day' @ Thom's Place yesterday. Boy howdy...what a day, huh? Good luck with the upcoming surgery tho.

My 55 is all the "F WORDS" this week. Here it is...don't be alarmed tho...trust me

Get REST G-man!!

Nessa said...

Mama Zen said...

Since you haven't been able to be on the computer, I wanted to be sure that you knew that Clean and Crazy arranged a little cyber birthday party for you yesterday!

Susan Anderson said...

Glad you got good news. Feel better G-Man!

I'm back with a 55 that was conceived and written as I listened to BT's Mercury and Solace over and over. I call it
......
Mercury and Solace! LOL See you on my blog :)

Fireblossom said...

Some people do creative blogs. Some people do mommy blogs. Some people do humor blogs. But G-man, you do the one and only ongoing boils-on-my-butt blog! LOL!

Sorry, but the misfortunes of others are always hilarious. My own are, of course, tragic and filled with pathos.

I hope that your birthday was wonderful, and am glad to hear you are on the mend.

Connie said...

Happy Birthday. Glad you are feeling a little better. Get well soon.

Serena said...

You dodged a bullet, G -- or a scalpel. See, the birthday fairies were looking out for you.:)

lime said...

i am so happy for your good news! no one should have to has surgery on his birthday.

i have to say though, i am not sure which is more terrifying in that picture, the knife or the andy rooney eyebrows.

i played this week.

Suldog said...

Great news! That's the power of prayer, that is!

Jessie said...

I hope that you enjoyed your day!

enchantedoak said...

Ironic, Galen, that after all your kick-ass comments to bloggers everywhere, you got a kick-ass message on your B-Day!
So glad you're feeling better and I've been there...

My 55 is up, but the last necessary line took it 4 words over. I could claim it as a 59 or maybe a 60 in honor of your milestone birthday. Come see me anyway. It'll make you drool.

VE said...

I have the definitive 55 this week in honor of your birthday...
Enjoy

Steve E said...

I should have let you know last night--I'm IN, man! Before you had 2,000 comments to answer. Just skip mine, you sick, sick, man --grin! (Now, I KNOW you won't!!!)

I'm sill praying that you will heal, and not even need the surgery...EVAH!

hope said...

Even though it sounds weird, antibiotics can be a good gift. :)
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!!!! And many more!

Mine's up. Take your time.

buffalodick said...

You gotta have a rubber donut somewhere in your collection of stuff.... :)

Lulda Casadaga said...

Akelamalu said...

So good to hear you're feeling better G-man! Haven't you got a rubber ring somewhere in the depths of your basement with all your other junk sorry treasures?

I'm still sending Reiki. xxxx

San said...

Hi sweetie. I'm over from Lime's lovely house. What a wonderful turn of luck you experienced on your 60th--happy birthday!

And I send my best wishes for your future surgery. May the meds and the scalpel do their magic efficiently!

Patty said...

Oh, G-man my heart goes out to you! A friend at work had a bout with boils this week also. My dad always used to refer to me affectionately(?) as a boil on his ass.
Wow, I never knew we had so much in common!
Thanks for sharing your delicate conditio0n with us, I hope you are feeling your old self soon!

Oh, Yeah, Happy Birthday!!!!!

Donnetta Lee said...

Galen: Happy Birthday and GET WELL!! You have been so good to send me well wishes when I am sick--now it's MY turn. Everyone wants you-well, back on your feet! 60 is young. Take care.
