Happy Birthday To Chuck Berry

1979 Cactus

Yeah, no.

“Yeah, no” is one of comedian Gary Gulman’s least favorite phrases, but it does fit here. While it is in fact Chuck Berry’s birthday, this is not a birthday cake as it appears at first glance. It’s actually Alpha Phi Alpha frat brothers Calvin, Glenn, and Jimmy examining blood samples collected by this bespectacled lady, performing Sickle Cell Anemia screenings.

Not quite the occasion to celebrate, unless your test results were negative.

And as for Chuck Berry, besotted by sex offender crimes and other legal troubles, the man DID have strong quadriceps.

      • Goodness, we so rarely get any rain, and now it’s been two weeks nonstop. The poor dogs are kept outside bc they’re too muddy to come in, and then they fight over who gets the fluffier dogbed/kennel on the porch, etc. But yes, many homes have been flooded on the lake. One friend’s propane tank broke loose, caught fire, and burned their home to the ground, surrounded by water. 😦 Just driving to the high school to pick my son up from homecoming last night, the roads are so saturated, all you do is kick up waves of water as you drive and try to see through your windshield. Only 6 of the floodgates have ever been opened at Mansfield Dam, and we’re having 8 opened today, so that’s a whole new wall of water coming down the pike to destroy more homes. Feast or famine, my friend!
