So my stepbrother has just been diagnosed with ALS also known as Lou Gehrig disease so he is having to take a medical retirement, in his 40's with a year to a year and a half to live.  I have been given the honor of baking the cake for his retirement party.  Any ideas for decorating, it isn't like he is going to be off fishing, or playing golf?  I think a clock might not be in very good taste.
