Hey Jim,
Happy Birthday today. You made it and I know you'll make a bunch more whilst still climbing.

Are we going to the Bugs? Let me know.

Why is the Donini/Lowe NIAD story being kept under such tight wraps? So what if it wasn't under 24 hours. It sure seems like it would make a great story. I'm hoping it's being saved for a great magazine piece somewhere - the greatest story ever told........or movie, or...... anyway, I keep searching and keep waiting, twiddling my thumbs and twerking away.

Even the stories leading up to the main event are worthy; the rockfall from the Muir Wall that disturbed one of the training days, Jim getting struck by another team's haulbag on another training day. We could have perspective by Chappy, and on and on. Bring on the ghost writers; Lauria, Robbins,.....

I had to go to an important meeting this week and had to get up too early. Just thinking about how badass Jim is snapped me into action!

Check your dates, gentlemen.

Just sayin' don't embarrass yourselves any more than necessary or take away any more decades remaining to JD...

This ain't the first time this has happened here, I bet.

Noticed a bunch of you clicking over on my website stats. Fun. Although I think we've missed the old reprobate's birthday by a country mile. But what the hell, every day is a victory, right Jim? ;-)

I've linked to 'em from other threads, so forgive the redundancy, but there are a lot of good pics of Jim in my Shaken, Not Stirred and A Fine Piece posts.

That was some real James Bond stuff, Greg, with all the hush-hush.

I'll buy you a martini someday, OK?
