Yesterday was my birthday and I extend my heartfelt thanks to all who helped me celebrate and who send their well-wishes.
I would like to point to one person in particular who did me the great honor of dedicating a blog post to me. That person is the inimitable M. Gordon Jenks. Read the post here.
What a joy to walk down those (booze-dimmed) paths of memory! If you read the post (and I hope you do), you get a pretty good picture of my college years and my relationship to a person who is the best of friends.
Oh, all that you read there is true. Absolutely true.
We had a lot of fun, ingested a lot of beverages, did a lot of really strange stuff and had a hell of a time. It was nigh on the perfect college experience and I wouldn't trade it for the world.
So, thanks, Jenksie. You brought a tear of joy to these thirty-one year-old bloodshot Irish eyes.
(Oh, if you need anything in Jenks's post explained, ask and we will do our best).
(Also, read the post below about remembrances of the past of a different nature).
It opened up my eyes I saw the sign
