You only turn 40 once, my time is coming
« on: September 14, 2016, 09:35:19 AM »
So, friends, family,  and probably a few random strangers are getting together on Nov 19th, roughly from 6 to 8 at Skookum Brewing in Smokey Point. Ive never really been one for parties and hoopla when it comes to my own birtdays but ive decided to go for it a bit this time around. So, if you need an excuse to go get a beer, maybe talk hunting, share some stories and have a beer then bring your dog and come on out.
Yes, my FJ is pink, I'm all about Team Jacob, beer is not for the horses nor is whiskey for the men, they are both for me.

Maybe I can make this one and avoid the flu!  I'm planning on being there, hopefully with some stories of this year's success!

Happy early Bday.  I will be in late archery deer camp  :( wish I could make it.  Have a great time, sorry I have to miss it.  Would have been nice to meet face to face.  Hopefully you will have a good huntwa turnout.
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.

I plan to be there.  I'm still in the woods with limited bandwidth now though so no pix.  I'll be able to share a story about how a guy fresh out of knee surgery with a walking stick was able to get on a pretty decent bull.  Luckily he has hunt camp partners that we're there to quarter and pack the bull out...

It's all down-hill after 40.  Trust me.

Happy B-day.
May I always be the kind of person my dog thinks I am.

Definitely not true. For myself I took up bike racing at 40. Pushed myself past goal after goal for 10 years. 17 years later, new goals and nothing going downhill yet as I get closer to 60.
Have a great birthday!

You guys can't even give him a little crap for getting old?  Geez.  :)

I'm sure it won't be long before his hair is either gone or has turned grey.......needs reading glasses, easily gets backaches, starts forgetting things.....

damn.....I forgot the other points I was going to make.  :o

Happy Birthday, h2o!  I'd be there if I weren't 320 miles from Smokey Point! 

I myself am staring 40 in the snout here in December.

It's the new 30, doncha guys know?!   :chuckle:  Yeah, that would be fun.  We could crack lots of beverages and reflect on whether or not we are "mature, seasoned hunters".     :o
