Senior Picture To the right is my senior picture taken almost 20 years ago (technically 19 1/2 years ago).  I thought I’d post that for your amusement.  In my defense, it was the 80s and this certainly looks better than the pink and gray striped shirt that I had; worn proudly with my thin gray leather tie.  So cool.  I must say I never, ever gave into wearing parachute pants.

You know, 40 seems pretty young right now.  It is hard to believe I have a teenage daughter, and a son who will be in 6th grade next year.  Our baby of the family is 9!  Also even though I have as much gray hair as my father I am thankful I have hair.  I am also thankful for my beautiful wife and those three great kids.  I am a blessed man.

  1. Happy birthday Shane!

    I'm not too far away from you. I'll be 39 this year with a soon-to-be 16 year old stepson and a soon-to-be 14 month old son. We are both very blessed men.

    Happy birthday. God's blessing to you this year.

    Joe.

  2. Ah, I fondly remember boys in pink with thin, leather ties. πŸ™‚ Nice picture. Happy Birthday! May the Lord continue to richly bless you with His peace and joy and with an appreciation for all His gifts — especially the gifts that children are.

    P.S. I'm 41, and I'm okay with it. πŸ™‚

  3. Man, dont worry about the grey hair. Proverbs says it is a crown of Glory. When I was 18 you could see my balding already. I have not found a good bible verse about a bald head… maybe somewhere.

    I am just a little behind you in the ol age… but 40… ugg!

  4. My God, My God!

    You are a brave, bold man. If I showed the afro-ridden, half-baked cat who was in my Senior picture, “The Writing on the Wall” would have a demolition ball hurled at it with the quickness of the rapture. I just can't even bare it.

    You, sir, have moxie!

    Happy birthday, my hero. πŸ™‚
