A facebook funny, kinda

This is what I'm using at present for my Facebook profile picture.  
This morning a Facebook friend, Mike Marlow, left the following comment beneath the picture:  "That's a great picture!  Tell Cliff I almost didn't recognize him with clothes on!  :)"  
That cracked me up, knowing people would be wondering what on earth that's about.  
Mike decided to return and add something:  "That looks a lot better than a hospital gown!  (figured I'd better straighten that out)"
You see, Mike was a respiratory therapist when Cliff had open heart surgery.  Dr. Gallion, the-man-who-walks-on-water, invited Mike to watch the surgery.    
I answered Mike thusly:  "You've not only seen Cliff without clothes, you've seen some of his internal organs!  Even I haven't seen his heart."
And Mike answered, "It was the most amazing thing I've ever seen. I'll never forget it. I'm glad that he's doing well. We should get together sometime soon for lunch or dinner. Tell him hi for me!"  

By the way, here's what it looks like out the window of my computer room.


  1. It is raining here this morning with forecast of lots of snow coming later on this evening. We do have some snow still left on the grounds. I love that picture of the both of you.

  2. Being a man, I'm sure once he realized what that sounded like, he hurried to fix it. :)

    I'd love to watch surgery.

  3. I run into people from work now and then when I am not in uniform. And at least twice I've heard that comment. "Wow, you look different with clothes on!" It always makes whoever is walking by stop and stare. I love it.

  4. That is a funny story, but it's a good thing you explained it so we don't get the wrong idea!

    Hey, I have a birdbath in my back yard that looks exactly like yours. When I saw the photo, I ran and looked out my window to make sure you didn't steal mine!!


I love comments!
