Happy Birthday to Jack's driver.....

As in everyday, you are with me in my thoughts...

Much missed my friend, and tonight will include a toast to your honor, strength, and mostly, your friendship....


“In the midst of winter, I found there was, within me, an invincible summer.

And that makes me happy. For it says that no matter how hard the world pushes against me, within me, there’s something stronger – something better, pushing right back.”

― Albert Camus

Well said my friend.

I too, miss him dearly.

And I also will be raising a glass to him tonight. Likely a Lagavulin. He liked the peaty stuff, much more than I.

Invictus

Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds and shall find me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.

William Ernest Henley


Everybody hurts. It's part of life. Don't miss the good stuff.

Just an FYI for any of Jacks old friends here...

A plaque was placed at the summit of Flattop mountain outside of Anchorage recently ...

It reads :

Finally, something that didn't make me stronger...

Jack Beans

Strength and Honor my friend....

Wow.

I didn't realize how long he's been gone.

I still miss him. He gave me lots to think about in some very dark times.
