Other than that …

Move over John Glenn, I’m a half century old today. So I’m taking it easy. Maybe that would be cause for the blues, but considering the crazy shit I’ve done over the years, from heads down vertical relative work skydiving to broken bones right and left, to a decade and a half of technical rock climbing half the classic routes in North America including El Capitan and then some, I’m fortunate to be alive and in one piece. This would be an off day in celebration, except it’s a holiday which means if I do work, I get double pay. Can’t pass that up in this dismal day and age.

    Cheers to all of us February 20th birthday havers! Enjoy your 50’s, Stephen, and keep up the good work! I’m staring down the barrel of the big 6-0 today, and what a long , strange trip it’s been! What can we do but continue to shine on?

    Best birthday quote ever, by Hunter S Thompson:

    Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming “Wow! What a Ride!”
