Birthday Wish List

Birthday Wish List

I hate to admit it but I am getting older. Does this mean that (like good wine) every day I am getting better and better in every way!? August is the month of my birthday back in 1968. I am getting used to my daughter Talya telling me how old I am (but I don’t feel old!!). But I was told to make a “wish” list for my birthday and since it is my birthday I can wish for some big things, 🙂 I have no real needs so … except I wish that I could replace Rachael’s eye that we recently found out does not work (she is beyond legally blind in her right eye, yep I would give her my one good eye but that won’t work). So I have no “needs” therefore I can dream big. Here is my dream wish list for my birthday.

I am an uncomplicated person …

The Expensive Wish List

I wish I could finally get my Harley. We actually looked at a few of them last Saturday but …

I wish I had a giant (and thin) HD TV to watch football on

I wish I could go on a hot date with Pamella to New York City

I wish I had a complete set of Alexander Campbell’s Millennial Harbinger

The Cheaper Wish List

Babylon 5 on DVD

The Forbidden Planet

BTO’s Greatest Hits

Henry Webb’s In Search of Christian Unity

Paul Conkin’s America’s Pentecost

Mark Noll’s The Civil War as a Theological Crisis

David Holmes The Faith of the Founding Fathers

R. A. Markus’ Gregory the Great and His World

Tickets to see the Scorpions in concert

Starbucks Card …

Well I can’t think of anything else.

    Didn’t the Scorpions have a hit song called “Winds of Change?” I love that song.

    I will not ask how old but one thing is sure. You are not equal to my 62 years. All that reading! How cold one possibly stay awake?

    Happy Birthday and God’s best to you friend.

    Grace to you,
    Royce Ogle

    (no spell check in comments) “could” not “cold”.

    Today’s my birthday too! It went well and hope your’s did too. If you ever get that date to NYC, let me know and we might try some Pizza somwhere.

    Vizio.com, baby.

    Flat panel TVs are nowhere near as expensive as the other things you’ve listed under the expensive list.

    Happy Birthday, brother, and I grieve for your sweet girl.

    in HIS love,

  8. Neva Says:

    Happy belated birthday–hope it was filled with blessings.

    You know, Bobby, you can set up wish lists on Amazon where a person can purchase something and have it shipped to you without needing to know your address. Just an idea. 🙂

    I guess most of the greatest people in the world have birthdays in August. (You, me, my dad, my sister, my wife, my best friend, and my great grandmother).

    Enjoy it!

  10. Dee O'Neil Andrews Says:

    Happy Belated Birthday, Bobby!

    Hope you get everything on both your wish lists!

    I’m so sorry to hear about your daughter’s eye. I’ll be praying for all of you about it. May God richly bless her life and y’all’s lives.

    What? Not a guitar or banjo anywhere on this list???

  12. Matt Says:

    Happy Birthday! I hope it is the best one yet. I also hope you stumble upon a complete set of the MH in some boxes somewhere marked, “Free for any takers.”

    “Tickets to see the Scorpions…”

    Bobby –
    I saw them live in Phoenix 10 years ago…age had taken its toll on the lead singer’s voice. Honestly, it was kind of sad as he could not hit the notes he was able to hit in their prime.

    Slip that one off your list and replace it with something else – hold on to the memories of them in their prime.

    However, if you are only going for the screaming dual lead guitar attack……you might want to leave that item on your list.

    Take care and have a happy birthday!

    Cool list, I try to make a list for Christmas every year for the family. At first, they hated it, but now request it because it is so much easier to just get me what I want.
