Kunye Online, birthdays, and a Little Fried Chicken

Hello, Benjamin from Brother’s Campfire here!

Yesterday, a site that gets a fair bit of traffic, Kunye Online, asked me to write a blog post. When I asked about the topic, I did not get an answer so I created a post and introduced myself.

You can read it here if you are interested. https://kunyeonline.com/2021/04/benjamin-brothers-campfire/

Not too bad for a first try!

Today was something new altogether. This is the first time I have been 38 years old, andy first day back to work after having body parts exctracted from my belly button.

My Beloved cooked eggs and sausage, sent me off with a coffeepot for my office, and selected my clothing for a bright and happy start to the work day. (I am truly spoiled!)

My children gave me a card, some yummy snacks to tale hiking,a banner to wear.

Like for real

I wore my banner to work, I was so proud.

I wore a jacket over my banner and when I went to a meeting, they mentioned it was my birthday.

Unzipping my jacket, I danced around singing, it’s my birthday! Laughter abounded, whether with me or at me who can tell.

I am not sure what the 30+ professional types present thought, but as the misguided youngsters say, “YOLO.”

I use the terminology in reference to wholesome living. You only live once, and good choices are a must. In this instance, I had a story to tell my children about how excited I was about their amazingness in accessory choices.

The rest of the day was successful, and I had a few meaningful conversations which I am appreciative of, but not at liberty to discuss. I like having real, down to earth interaction, a rare commodity.

Dinner was fried chicken, potatoes, and coleslaw with berry pie and ice cream for dessert. The Twelve Year Veteran of Life played Happy Birthday with his ocarina. Pretty Nifty!

Well folks, that was my day. I am exhausted. See you tomorrow!

    sounds like a great birthday, plus you are close to my wife’s age and born on the same day. ๐Ÿ˜ Happy Belated brother, for whatever reason WordPress won’t notify me of your posts.

    1. The Storyteller says:

      Thank you! I have the notification problem due to being self hosted. They tell me I need to pay 7.99 per month for Jetpack to index my posts by keyword or allow notifications. I do have an email subscription, but that does not work for everyone.
