Birthday #51 has arrived. Phone call from mother already received.
I shot the shit for awhile around the office before waiting out the torrential rain and driving to Taco Mac to have beers with coworkers. Don’t act surprised…
No “going away” lunch for me; hell, in the eyes of the company I really haven’t gone away (yet).
As an added bonus last night I ran into Amy, the former Taco Mac employee who served me regularly years ago; she happened to be there talking to some of her old friends.
We drank and then shot more shit until some time around 9pm.

Aggravated Birthday to me!
I will update this section when I get home.
Not in a gay way, nothtatthereisanythingwrongwiththat…
Today is Day 1 of the rest of my life; yours too, by the way.
I have to admit, it’s a bit surreal and will only get more surreal as I load into a school bus and head to Iowa.
This morning I am combatting the surreal by doing some routine things. Currently I am at the lavanderia washing clothes that I intend to pack. Nothing like waiting until the last minute, eh?
Later this morning I will give the grass a quick buzz so that it looks kempt (apparently not a word, but I think you know what I mean) whilst I am away.
After a quick shower I will do my final packing and get into the traveling mindset again.
To The Post Office?
As much as I don’t want to do so I may go to the East Atlanta post office to see if I can get my tent fan package. My greatest fear is that the mail deliverer will see this as a sign to ignore my hold mail request and deliver my mail all next week. You may think that I am being silly, but I am not.
I’m still kicking myself for not realizing the flaw in my plan to have the fan delivered on the same day as my hold mail began.
Now that I have D-cell batteries I may just go to REI or Dick’s Sporting Goods to see if I can find a suitable replacement.
Enjoy your Friday folks!
I will do the best I can to post while doing RAGBRAI.
