It’s Jimmy’s 25th B Day-ish, It’s Complicated, And Makes Perfect Sense.


Jimmy, Yannon, and some magic light

There are few people in ones life that you can 100% depend on, and they can 100% depend on you. No agenda, no convenient okay’s. Just blind trust and fun to hang around, no matter how long its been since you have seen each other. I can count those pals on one hand. We all can. I swear on that hand on the bible, if Jimmy called from a trip to Ohio in the middle of the night, and needed help, I would be on my way. Oh, I owe him. He is always prepared for whatever, cause he has been through whatever. I learn from him, and wish I was more like him. Actually the Boatress REALLY wishes I was more like him.

The Boatress and Jimmy

Well, today is Jimmy’s B Day. I am not going to say his age not because he gives a crap, he doesn’t. But to put a year or age on Jimmy is just nuts. He has the wisdom of a 90 year old, the heart of a 16 year old in love for the first time, the sense of humor of a 12 year old, the look of a 40 year old, and some sort of “something” that just makes the ladies swoon. It’s crazy.

Mt Dora some years ago

A great Roadtrip buddy, eats anything, and can pull an all nighter if need be. So how do you put an age on that? You cant and its what our lives are all about. I would average all those years into a good, smart, funny…horny 45 year old. And 45 is the new 25, so he is 25.

Road trips with Jimmy are legendary

Just hanging out with Jimmy is fun, dont need to say a word. Just wait for someone to do something stupid and its belly whacking time.

Jimmy to the Rescue

OPEC should be wishing Jimmy a Happy B Day BTW

Jimmy out on a “Therapy ” session

So here is to the man, the myth, and the legend that is known by just one word. JIMMY. Happy 25th-ish B Day!

Party on the Termite Terror

This is Jimmys house.. Yes he lives in a barn. And its cool as hell.

There is ALWAYS some sort of feast going on at Jimmys.

Lake Dora hanging with the crew

Thankyou Jimmy! You make life fun.

      My first road trip with Jimmy was the first Saint Michaels MD. Antique boat show 33 years ago. The only rule on a Jim Scott road trip is KEEP your beer down when you pass a cop.
      Love yea Jim

    I have not had the opportunity to spend as much time with Jimmy as I would like, but the time I have had with him is always fun and enjoyable. A real Gentleman’s Gentleman with one of the biggest hearts of any soul that I have ever had the pleasure of meeting.

    Happy Birthday Jimmy!

    Hope to see you in Dora.

    Thank God for guys like Jimmy!
    We all have a couple of close friends like Jimmy, that over the years have kept us from doing really stupid things and killing ourselves in the process.
    Haven’t met you in person yet Jimmy, but HAPPY BIRTHDAY and thank you for keeping Matt in one piece for all of us!!!!

    If he needs help on northern Michigan, Matt have him give me a call, I’m in the the ACBC book.
    We all need people more like him.
    For that matter if anyone needs help and you are in Northern lower peninsula of Michigan call me.

    I’ve never met Jimmy, at least not beyond his numerous appearances here on WoodyBoater. But those appearances have made it clear he is a great friend to you, whom you are most fortunate to have. Wishing you happy birthday today & for many years ahead, Jimmy.

    Been wondering where he’s been. My son is the closest thing to a “Jimmy” I have and he’s no where close (at least he’s within 40 miles) but the best I have. I wonder if Jimmy has a “Jimmy”? HBD James.
