Charlie. Just Charlie.
I’m here to announce that my choices for dinner would be exactly what a third grader would have chosen. And now, my friends, I feel like shit for it. And I am immediately regretting it.

So, many people look at 40 as being over the proverbial hill. They see it as the downhill slide.
Here’s the way I look at it. While I started my adult life early (19 years old in the Army with a family), I like to make the following observation: let’s say you start “living life” as an adult at 20. Let’s also assume we’ll all generally make it to the age of 80. Those 60 years are split up into nice, pretty, evenly spaced 20 year increments.
I spent the first third either serving this wonderful country, working my ass off for 60-80 hours a week at all hours of the day in all ranges of weather and temperature, or struggling to carve my place into the industry I serve now. Along with my dedicated and hard working wife, we’ve raised two beautiful, strong, and determined daughters. We’ve reared many an animal, pet and livestock alike. We’ve made strong and lasting friendships with a small few wonderful people that have graced our lives.
This second third will be spent seeing both of my daughters into solid, serving careers. At least a couple more sets of fur babies will allow us the honor to care for their every need. My career will continue to develop and at the rate the past 11 years have shown, who knows where it will lead. I will get back to traveling. I will cherish this world I live in, and will be financially stable as I take it all in. I will continue to be proud of everything that I have accomplished and built. I will try my best to set my children on the same hard-earned path to success, mentoring them as much as they will let me. I will always be here for all three special women in my life.
That final third will see me starting to wind down from the job. There will be grand babies I will watch grow into their own, and perhaps even great grands. My wife, my children and their families, and my dogs will look back onto this life and cherish the memories. Then I’ll try to spring for another 20!
The way I see it, I’m about to enter an even better set of 20. I love the fact I’ve turned 40 today, and can’t wait for 50, then 60, then beyond! BRING IT ON!!!
Miss Sid: I’m pretty sure that this is the exact opposite of what the Cuntessa ordered…. But hey! Here’s to hoping this is the item they reused the box for!
