62.

.: Another year, another birthday. I cannot process, let alone fathom, that I am 62 today. The number is virtually meaningless. That said, I can feel my body aching just a bit more than it usually does as time slowly takes its toll.

I am celebrating my birthday in Cambridge MA. Just returned from a second brilliant Buffalo Tom concert in two nights at The Sinclair, followed by Chinese cuisine with Dave Roe and Mike Haverty afterward. Thanks to both of you for the company, drinks, and very late dinner, guys.

They say as you get older, time seems to move faster. It’s the truth, my friends. I am grateful to have made it this far in life, grateful that my parents are still with us, as well as my brothers and their families. I blessed to be working at the University of Alberta Libraries, now for over 31.5 years, in the great city of Edmonton AB, in the amazing country of Canada.

Thank you to my family, friends, colleagues, and acquaintances for being an important part of my life to date.

Happy Birthday. To me.

    Happy Birthday Randy. I hope life is still fun for you these days. I am lucky to have my mother still around and mentally doing very well as well my brother and two sisters are still doing reasonably well. My former house where you celebrated one of your many birthdays in Coquitlam is no more, there is a 5000 square foot replacement where my old 2000 square foot house used to be.

    .: Thank you, Steve. I’m doing reasonably well, and continue to work for a while longer, anyway. I will remember the Sprice house well; hard to believe it’s been torn down.

    I say, Venerable One. Congrats on 62-ness. Mucho celebrado tantamucho cake-and-eat-it carousel, as they say. I will shortly enter the yawning chasm of the “new 50” zone myself. By the by I have figured out why time passes more quickly with age. It is because as we get older we increase in mass, warping the fabric of space-time. Simple when you think about it.

    Happy 63rd on Monday Randy. I hope you have had a good year. It is hard to believe I will be 68 later this year, but as long as you have reasonably good health, everything is good.
    Steve
