So it was my close friend Skip’s 40th birthday this weekend. It was a surprise party for him at his mom’s place in Cazadero, CA on her 48 acres of property. When Skip walked out, he had his new look, which he started on the annual Jacks on the River camping trip this year. Jacks on the River got together again and it was such a blast! Check out the before and after pics, click on the first picture of Skip for pictures of the party this weekend and below that is Skip’s “before” picture when we went our camping trip end of July.
