Okay, so what, I agree.

BUT, when the lead headline earlier this week was "Snow on the ground in 49 of 50 states", well, I be thinkin' some excuse for fun is in order.

My 60 is a week out tomorrow, January 19th. More than a few of you either just passed, or will soon also pass into the realm of irredeemably no longer young, so let's throw a party, since I, for one, refuse to go down without a fight!

(For real sidebar: I am aiming for Halley's comet return. July 28, 2061. I'll only be 104!)

Post any darn thing you want, just make it entertaining, and NUMBER them as you go. Don't make me have to take off my shoes to count past ten, then do all that math to get to sixty. Inspiring all of us to keep the stoke up is a plus, as is laughing hard enough to spew the coffee. If ya get flagged, though, doesn't count. Nor does mean (please flag).

Here's how it gets back to climbing:

You people get 60 posts on here, and Old lady H. will publicly deflower herself, and get her FIRST LEAD climb in. Outside. Photos!

Now, how long has it been since someone offered up their virginity to you, eh?

Go for it! I WILL NOT PEEK, so it will be up to you to police yourselves, please.

Remember, there are others who either just hit, or will soon hit, those big, fat numbers, so if any of you want to throw in a wonky offer to celebrate yours..... :-)

Best, Helen

AKA Old Lady H
See ya a week from tomorrow!

Oh, and if this doesn't go anywhere, that's okay too. Y'all still gotta catch if you ever wander through town. You buy the coffee, though.

Even though that would be disturbingly hilarious, how about putting in 60 climbs on your big-day.

Hey Old Lady H,

I'm not too active in the forums, but I lurk a lot. You're one of my favorite personalities around here; a voice of kindness, humor, and wit. I wish more people were like you on the internet. I hope you have a great birthday - I'm excited to see videos or pictures of your first lead. Climb safely!

10) Yes, Happy 60th. Thanks for the positive posts you've made.

Idaho in January would be a cold first lead. So, I suppose after that, it will be cake...

Aren't we all seeking attention when we post witty comments like the above?

Good luck Helen! Looking forward to those pics..

From one of your weirder Mountain Project friends, Happy Birthday Helen! If there's anything I can do to help in any way, lemme' know please.

Maybe the 70th Birthday..

Well, that numbering idea didn't last long.

Oh, um, 8. I think?

Happy Birthday. But what is important is your mental age. Me, I'm going on 13!

You are a mere child. I'm not sure you're even old enough to lead. But I'm looking forward to the photos -- when the snow melts.
