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.

30 years ago...

Almost 30 years ago, I was born at the cabin in Condon, Montana. I was delivered by my Dad, with his hunting knife. There were no doctors around, only my Mom and Dad - and my grandma was sleeping in the Sauna with my sister. The only complication was my umbilical cord wrapped around my neck and my head was blue. My dad's hunting knife made quick work of that. July 16th - one of my favorite days of the year.

Funny, I just went back to look at what I had to say last year. Pretty much the same thing. Oh well, I guess I haven't changed much in the last year. ;-)

Whew! For a minute there, I thought your dad used his hunting knife to perform a C-section!

Happy Birthday, Matt. It was my birthday on the 14th although I've not quite reached the big 30. ;-)

Sauna? Are you of Finnish ancestry perhaps?

It says in "The Cabin" post that you were born July of 1973. This isn't your first 30th, is it?

Heh, that's funny that I had the wrong year in there for so long. Should be "July of 1974" - fixed now. Thanks!
