This is my friend Don, and I just have to brag
on him a bit. This photo was taken a week ago
(clearly not by me) on his 65th birthday.
And yesterday, he summited Everest! That's
exciting enough, but he also made the record
books—as the first person with a total hip
replacement to make it to the top. Right now,
Don's my hero—and I wish him Godspeed back
to base camp, and safely home to NYC.
He created a fabulous website with a link to
a blog, where he's managed, with help from his
son here in NYC, to post from up there.
Check it out for a great vicarious experience
(the only kind of Everest experience I'll ever have!).

my fellow native New Yorker!]
