I hope I'm that funny when I'm living in the old folks home

If you haven't been reading Old Horsetail Snake--well, frankly you're just nuts. You'd have to be. This guy lives in an "old folks home," according to him. How many people do you know in the old folks home who have a blog? And it's not the kind of blog you'd expect from somebody's grandpa or great grandpa, either. The guy is a real writer and a great wit, and I'm continually amazed at how he finds something clever and interesting to write about every day. He's funny and smart and sometimes he really needs his ass kicked. I can't remember how old he has said he is, but I know the first number is a 7. (It's only a two-digit number, though, so that's not too old.) If you comment on my blog you're probably familiar with him, because you've seen his comments here, which are some of the funniest ones.

His daily posts are always a scream--although his most current post is the only one I've seen of his that isn't funny; it's his wife's obituary. She passed away Friday. Go pay him a visit. Give him some love, and while you're there, check out some of his other posts. If you don't pee just a little from laughing, I'll personally come to your house and mop your kitchen floors for you.

Okay...I'll go. But I hope you know how to clean hardwood floors.

Thanks for pointing out the boo-boo Karla. Fixed it.

Karla, I am in love with your photo. I wish to know you in a biblical sense, if you catch my drift. I hope the feeling is mutual.

And I'll check out that blog for you, my darling...

Very nice of you. I adore Old Hoss

I am determined not to laugh and I will even let you cheat by using my Floormate to mop the floors. :)

It's nice to see the outpouring of support he's recieved... It warms my heart and gives me a little hope that the internet is good for more than sifting through free porn.

Not that that's going to stop me from, you know... sifting through free porn.

What I wanna know is whose going to come clean up the floors AFTER I pee just a little?! :)

Oh yea, cried a little, peed a little. Actually, I pooped a whole lot, but the pampers held better than the New Orleans levee so no floors to clean.

Margo of Mystery and Mayhem said...

So you'll only clean floors if I don't pee? Off the hook, thanks for sharing the Hoss

So sad about Hoss' wife. The outpouring of condolences is overwhelming.

see, the rumors of your soul-lessness were greatly exaggerated.

I haven't even read his blog yet, but I can assure I will not be laughing even once because my floors really need some work.
