But I measure life in donkey years


420 years. Hahaha. I human year is seven dog years. The above is a card I received from out East. Anyway, getting to that which is more relevant, 1 human year is about 2 donkey years. I measure life in donkey years. So in human years I’m 60, but in donkey years I’m 120. And that’s the iconic biblical age. Meanwhile, what is age? Grace turns to glory as St Paul says, and that’s eternal in heaven.

    Said a rosary for you today, Fr. George. If I was in your neighborhood, I’d have stopped by at morning mass to hear your birthday homily. Happy Birthday, Father, may Our Lord bless you and grant you many more.

  2. Heeee Haaaaaaaaaw. That’s , “Happy Birthday,” in donkey. Happy 120th, Father. God bless you.

    If you haven’t watched this video yet (2:23 mins) you ought to, purely to but a massive grin on your face…I’m sure there’s some spiritual lesson there. But it’s mostly fun watching the dog just be the doggiest dog that could ever dog. https://youtu.be/ND63UPelkIw
