Turning 30 today. Whoa.

Back home with mom and dad after a apocalyptic hellride out of Chicago, around Gary and up the coast to Traverse City.

Glad to be home.

Happy Birthday. It is now ok to start the “when I was your age…” stories to the youngsters

Example: “You lazy bastard, when I was your age we had to get up to change the channel.”

Example: “iPods are too heavy?! When I was your age I had to haul my record collection around with a god-damned handtruck, and my apartment was on the 10th floor “

Have a fun birthday.

Happy birthday, fucker. Glad to hear you made it home. I’m trying to pound your ass imprints out of my passenger seat. Have a good time in Traverse City (the Other T.C.).

Comment on 30 (from someone whose been there) = It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.

In fact, it’s still the worst of times.

When I turned 30 in August a good friend told me not to be concerned because most men do their best “work” in their 30’s.

Get it on!

Happy Birthday man.

Happy birthday you magnificent bastard!

30s Have been better than 20s for me. 20s sound cooler and all, but most guys I know do better in their 30s, except those stuck in “the good old days” mode. You keep it real and have a fine memory of the past but that hardly seem you.

Still, I hope many alcoholic drinks were sacrificed.
