Happy Birthday Jim!

In the famous words of the character Billy Bones from the movie Muppet Treasure Island: "Jimmy-Jim-Jimmy-Jim-Jim-Jim-Jim."

Okay, I admit that those words are, in all truthfulness, fairly obscure. But they are still pertinent. For today is Jim Sander's birthday. And, like all other birthdays, this one needs to be celebrated. Desperately. If only Ambassador had recently started some sort of tradition to deal with a situation such as this. If only there were a burger joint men could go to prove their manliness against mankind's oldest foe - meat. If only I was very obviously talking about taking Jim to In-N-Out to test his mettle against the nearly insurmountable cholesterol of the 4x4 animal style burger.

And guess what? He did it. No medical treatment necessary! (Even with his animal style french fries) Speaking of animals, Jim has proven beyond any doubt that he has the heart of a lion, and the digestive tract of a bear. How he got so many organs from animals I'll never know. Judging by the way he wolfed (CLEVER PUN ALERT) down that half-pound of meat, he probably killed a lion and a bear at the same time with his bare hands before performing surgery on himself.

In any case, it has been decided by the board of trustees of the Ambassador 4x4 Club that Jim should be inducted into our ranks, with honors.

Happy birthday, Jim!

Ambassador 4x4 Club - Current Members:

Robert Jacobsen - President
Jim Sanders - Chief of Staff (and Amb-OS Heavyweight)

Special thanks to JC for coming up with the idea in the first place.


Well, my birthday is next among the Ambassador Men's Contingent, and I'd like to fish for some sympathy for the 4x4 challenge ahead of me.

November 24th comes two days before Thanksgiving. That's the week that features Peg Campbell's famous, ultra- delicious and even more fattening "cheesy potatoes," together with seemingly many pounds of turkey and trimmings, all chased down with slices of pumpkin pie. If Blimpie were not already the name of a sandwich franchise, I'd trademark it for a description of ME after that week.

What? No sympathy? Ah well, bring on the meat!

Jim proved to us all that on our best days, such as on our birthday, we can have "Bruin-like" qualities! ;-)

I cannot believe you ate the whole thing!
