You must be getting close to 7 terms. Think you'll manage to roll a ship on mustering out? 8-)

I'm not even sure what Traveller career "Former games store owner, current SFF reviewer" would even qualify as.

For most people I'd say "Other" from the original Book 2. But the animal encounters, the Nicoll events, and his LJ icon just scream "Scout" to me for some reason. Maybe it's the 7+ needed for survival every 4 years...

Didn't at least one version have "Merchant" and "Artist" as careers? Those seem like plausible fits.

When I visited my parents recently, my father pointed out that he's now older than his own father was when he died, and just drew even with his grandfather. "Onward!" he said.

My dad died a month or so short of 45 so I have him beat by 11 years. My mother died at 59 so 2021 will be a major birthday for me.

No reason ever to stop progressing into the future, really.

So how did your birthday *lunch* go?
