Over 10 years ago, I wrote my first blog post. Since then, I've authored books, had kids, traveled the world, found Trish and blogged about it all.

A RaibleLand Holiday: My Birthday

I was born on this day 29 years ago, at 4:30 in the morning. I was born at the cabin, with only my dad (who is a Navy man, not a doctor) to assist. I came out with my umbilical cord wrapped around my neck and my whole head was blue. This had to be quite a surprise for my parents, doing the home birth and all. My dad, always good at thinking fast, grabbed his hunting knife from his belt and sliced that puppy off in a split second. And that's why I'm here today.

Ever since I worked at, where they gave us our birthday's off, I've continued to take the day off. So today, there will be none of this blog checking, e-mail reading nonsense (save for an early morning peak) - but rather a whole bunch of goofing off, playing with my favorite ladies, and possibly some indulgence into a few of my favorite savory Colorado microbrews.
