Greetings foolish mortals and welcome to the BBP's last remaining roughly hour and a half of being in the 40s.  

I can say it has been a very interesting decade and I've seen a lot, done a lot and gone to a lot of places.  I didn't start this website until 2011 so I only have the 7 past years documented on this site.  However, my mind has the remaining years that completed the 40s.  

I remember the day I turned 40 as it was ruined by some issues at a previous job.  Turned out it was a lack of communication on many levels but mine but the damage had been done and it affected my day.  I remember another birthday in 2012 as I returned to the United States after being over in Afghanistan and Iraq for almost 2 years.  It was a great present to put my feet back on U.S soil for that birthday.  

Yes, the past decade has seen me in Afghanistan, Iraq, UAE, Turkey, Ireland, England, France, Belgium, Netherlands, Czech Republic, Germany, Switzerland, Austria and Italy along with numerous cities. I've moved across the country from Florida to California and have excelled.  

The time has flown by at times and while I say farewell to my 40s and welcome to my 50s, I eagerly await the new adventures.  I also think how fortunate I am to have made it this far because I've had friends who didn't make it to this age.

Happy Birthday BBP and until next time...

BBP out!!!
