It’s Nathan Smith’s birthday today. He’s among the first folks I met as “Icarus”, back when he was still mostly a kid attending Dalton State college. Instead of getting him off my lawn, I’ve been able to watch him morph over a decade into a District GOP Chairman, husband, and father. He’s always been mature for his age, but now has the record, resume, and responsibilities to show for his old soul. Despite hanging with us all these years, he’s still the great guy we all came to know and love a decade or so ago.
But now, he’s even older. So wish him a happy birthday. Then get off of his lawn.
