Happy Birthday Dr Jim West!
Yes, Happy Birthday Jim, 50 today. Jim is not only the most important thing to ever happen to biblioblogging, and a keen scholar with a wit as sharp as his mind, but also a dear friend. I honestly feel privileged to know him as I do, and our laughs together at SBL are unforgettable. Now, at the ripe age of fifty, not only can he expect to have to pee three times a night (instead of twice), but his best two decades lay ahead of him. I thank God for you, Jim (and yea, I know you are southern Baptist, but can you not have just a little tipple of Whiskey today? Tell you what – I'll vicariously enjoy a shot of Jägermeister tonight for you. What are friends for, after all? - Oh, and for everyone else: feel free to redistribute my artwork as you see fit)
