 Today, March 19th, we celebrate the ## Birthday of Retired FDNY Firefighter and site member, Dan P, aka "JohnnyGage".

 Without telling you his age, as most of you know, I first met Dan when he was the chaffer of Ladder Co 5 and he pulled the rig in a great spot for me, so that I could get "That PERFECT Rig Shot".

 That was about 20 years ago and he had "already" spent 3 years as a firefighter in Washington, D.C. Then he got the FDNY job and put more years in at Ladder 31, Ladder 112, then Ladder 5, then back to Ladder 31 again. Now of course Dan is retired.

 So my friends, when you add all those years up, I guess we can consider him as one of Our Senior Members. Joining so many of us, who in most cases, would be considered, simply put, "Some Old Men".

 Dan, aka "JohnnyGage", is a Great Guy and he is still into the job like so many others here.

 Well Dan, HAPPY BIRTHDAY and many, many more. GREAT to have you here among us.

 Here's a Special Birthday tune by Johnny May that I hope you enjoy. :)

Thanks Willy, that IS THE BEST RENDITION of Happy Birthday I have ever heard! Thank you again for your kind thoughts. I'm hitting the 62 mark, has a nice ring to it! Going to join some family members for a nice lunch on Arthur Ave and coffee/pastry around the corner on 187 St. Then cracking open a fresh batch of Johnny Walker Double Black, neat.

Let me say, being a part of this network has made me feel young again. It's fun to share thoughts with those who have the same interest and experiences. You did a great job of putting this site together, and I'm glad to be a small part of it. Joining this site I have met/spoken with new acquaintenances and very much enjoyed previous lunch gatherings. This network is the "all and everything of the FDNY".

As I said, would love to have joined you, Jack and Warren tomorrow night but I'm told some family members have "plans for me". So I'll sign off with what a wiseman told me when I said as a lad; "Ol' Wiseman, someday when I GROW UP, I want to be a FIREFIGHTER". Wiseman stopped looked at me and said "Sorry sonny, you can't have it both ways, it's either one or the other".
Best, thanks to all for your kind wishes.
Dan "JohnnyGage"

Happy Birthday (Kid) and many more. Thought sure you'd celebrate at "Jack In The Box" on Suffolk Avenue & Brentwood Road. Congratulations Dan and stay safe my friend.

Wow - happy birthday Dan.  Don't accept an offer from Willy D to celebrate at some nice place or he will be taking you out for a Happy Meal - and you will pay.

Happy Birthday, Dan and whoever called you Kid is correct. At 62, you are one of the younger boys on this site.  Willy D doesn't look a day over 80.
