Happy Birthday, General Mayhem!

I don't have a digital picture of the 11 pound, 11.3 ounce lump when he was born 14 years ago,

but he was always a happy kid.

I don't have digital copies of his baby pictures that show jowls that would make a Mastiff jealous, 

but he always had a good appetite.

He makes great faces,

and is a bit giggly.

He started Karate,

and kept on studying.

He's a bit goofy,

and creative when presented with challenges,

like chopping onions.

He's not a bad looking kid, either.

He has always enjoyed Halloween!

Somewhere along the way,
he started to grow up.

And he's still studying karate!

Happy 14th birthday, General Mayhem!  May you create more mayhem
for many years to come!

Happy Birthday young man. If you want some advice, here it is.

When presented with monumental life choices, clear your mind (take your time), close your eyes, imagine you are 85 years old looking back on yourself, and try to devine what it is you would wish you would have done.

Here's a clue, the hardest thing to do is often the right thing to do.

some 57 yr old dude on the interwebs.

Belated birthday wishes to the General. He's a very handsome young man and I'm sure you're very proud of him and all his accomplishments. WOW - His Captain Jack Sparrow look is amazing!
