Well folks...Today is my birthday. Yup sixty two years old....

Several years ago, I suffered from a life threatening illness, that almost killed me, but changed my way of thinking in a profound way. Before that fateful time, I was one of the most self centered people on the planet. I thought the whole world revolved around my wants and needs.

When I arrived at Hospice, I was barely able to walk from chemo therapy and was clinically depressed. They took me in as one of their own and helped me get back on my feet with compassion, love and understanding. They taught me the greatest gift you can give someone is yourself.

I got rid of the macho shit and finally became a true man. A man who needs to help others less fortunate than himself. Now that I am healthy, I still go to Hospice on a regular basis and give my time and energy to those who need it most. I can hold my head up like a real man and fight the good fight.

One thing for sure is ...I'm not a saint..I've got lots of problems just like everyone else, but I like myself now and I don't take myself too seriously.

Thanks for reading this...Professor Pan.T.Borty

Dear Professor Borty !

Having known you for about a year now. I can truthfully say.
In my book you have alway been not just a man,..but a very
caring, loving man who gives joy and pleasure to all who know
you, and to those who read your blogs. I think you are a great
guy and a good friend,

Yes you are a MAN.

And here's a greeny.

Yanno Borty sometimes it isn't a life threating illness that grips you and gets you turned around...it can also be an emotional illness that renders one dysfunctional. Mine dogged my footsteps all my life and it's taken me 5 years of self applied "chemo" to stop the slow destruction of who I am as a person and I had to travel that road alone.

The end results for you and I are the same...I know now it's not all about me. It's in the giving that we receive. Healing comes in many ways and it's not always in a pill we take, and it will always start in a heart change.

To me you are a man in every sense of the word...and I see it coming from your heart.

Happy Birthday...you are catching up to me... but don't let that scare ya...I'm not getting older...just better...and so are you!

Happy Birthday Borty!!!!!

I’m glad you’re healthy now!
That you give of yourself by volunteering is a greater gift than you know.
It is the only gift that helps both the receiver and the giver.

With all my best wishes have a great day!

PS I’ll send you some panties to add to your collection!

Most know that I'm far from a Saint as one could be;but learned from a different experience how to be a man. Jess and I regularly work at the local womens and homeless shelters and I can tell you that it is much more satisfying than "giving at the office".

Happy birthday, Borty!! I enjoy reading your blogs. Hospice people are the greatest!! About 3 years ago, I had a fiance that was diagnosed with liver cancer. He only lived for another 6 weeks, but he was in hospice care and I can never say enough good things about them.

Best wishes to ya!!

Belated Happy Birthday. I hope my second chance works out the same as yours. I can use your birthday speech as an inspirational speech.

By the way, any word from your attorneys on the edible panties deal for my GPS units.
