it's official: I'm a crusty old chuffer

40 years young and proud owner of a new TOY.
Thanks for coming over to celebrate my 40th trip around Soleil, otherwise known as our Sun. I suspected Jen might be up to something, but nothing anyone did spoiled the surprise. Jen sends extra special thanks out to The Delo, Fi, Lori, Jennifire and anyone else who helped her out with the final preparations. Jen commented last night after several years of getting to know most of you guys/gals that she has finally begun to understand that part of the allure of rock climbing is the quality of the friendships you develop. She also said that - climbing aside - it is obvious that we genuinely enjoy each other's company. I suspect this is one of the reasons many of us are DRAWN to bouldering and it's social nature. Anyway, thanks for making it an awesome and very memorable birfday!!! You guys rock.

W3RD! Happy Birthday the chipper! Diggs and I had a great time and look forward to seeing sticky rubber on the end of that cane for Evans this summer.
