My quest for the perfect birthday photo.

If you read the chiefsplanet tabloids at all, you probably know that I'm about to turn fifty.

Fifty.

It's a time of reflection. A time of taking stock. And to a great extent, it's a time of figuring out how you should celebrate surviving a half-century of life on earth, which for the most part is reserved for humans, turtles, parrots, and some mosses and large tree species.

So as my birthday's headlights began appearing over the horizon, my wife asked me how I want to celebrate it. She's older than me, and on her fiftieth we hosted a big party with all of her friends and five really awesome cakes, each decorated to reflect one decade of her life. It was a very nice party, and it made her happy to celebrate it with her friends.

She asked if I wanted to have a party with my friends, but I thought about it and said no. My fiftieth birthday should be bigger than just hanging out on Chiefsplanet for a few hours and fedexing you some cake.

What, then, should we do? I gave it some thought, but she nixed my initial suggestion of a threesome. Honestly I didn't expect that to fly anyway.

My second choice, however, did, and it became my quest. For my fiftieth birthday, I want to take a really cool and memorable fiftieth birthday photo.

After several months of planning, the process has begun. I will post pictures of my progress.

Let me begin by saying that if you fly, you should fly first class. I seldom do, but I shot up a decade or so of frequent flyer miles and got "the pod", one of those first-class seats that folds completely flat into a bed. [ferris bueller voice] If you have the means, I highly recommend picking one up on a long flight. [/bueller] Plus, you get a nice big screen with hundreds of movies and TV shows, and they give you a little bowl of cashews before every meal. Choice.

What kind of amenities did your wife enjoy back in coach?

She said it was 'fine'. Didn't say much else.

Okay, I took off again yesterday and did some more flying. But I am now positioned for the best 50th birthday photo ever.

First we had a little lunch at this fine restaurant.

There's this really great renovated historic hotel in Decorah, IA that you should check out for a nice photo, Rain Man. The business consultant in you would have a great time marveling at the wise owner who decided to make the investment in such a lucrative building.

I turned 49 a couple of weeks ago so get to face turning 50 soon enough. I'll probably deal with it the same way I do every birthday - by doing nothing.

I don't know exactly where you are, but it has to be pretty fancy for them to charge 4000 for a sandwich.

There's a lot of overhead in keeping those dirt floors clean.
