Happy Birthday John!

My brother John turns 40 tomorrow. Living in California by the beach, frequently hang gliding, owner of a successful business, he's living large. I hope that the coming years go as well.


Here's a picture of him (between me and my sister Susan) when we lived in Ecuador (where John was born). I got the picture from John's website, and he added the comment about the forehead. I don't say anything because those of us in glass houses...

A funny thing about this picture, is that I still sit that way whenever possible. I found myself doing that during office hours while talking to a student, and I straightened up in a futile attempt to look professional. (Wearing shoes would have helped too).

Happy Birthday John!

John said...

Thanks,

I was really flying low today at my last client and couldn't figure out why.

Oh yea, tomorrow is...

By the way Brad,

Don't those look like the chairs in the backyard of Padoc & Gramma's house?

That'd peg me at at least one.

After meeting Batman at 5, it's been all downhill.

Shoes -- great idea. I'll try to remember this next time I have to go see the dean.

Happy Birthday John! 40? Been there, done that. As Everett told me watch out for those pesky nose and ear hairs!

Jay.. I understand that shoes are the next big thing. At least that's what I've heard.

Sorry to hear that you were feeling low, John, though I felt the exact same way on 40.

Sounds like very good advice, Derek!

My shoes have always been a big thing. I've been a size 12 since junior high school.
