Happy Birthday!

To the coolest dude I know:

The one who taught me to swing a hammer, drive, hit a baseball, barbecue,  properly prune a rosebush, mow the lawn, diagnose a troublesome noise in the car, always use Yellow Power Bait, and vote Republican.

And also the one who taught me to be considerate of others, gracious in accepting gifts, respectful of my elders, to love my God and my country, see the best in other people, love my family and friends fiercely, and always do my best.

Not to mention to have fun, be careful and ALWAYS hold on tight.

Happy Birthday, Dad!

Wonderful, loving, and strong dads are too few and far between these days - I am so glad that my friend is blessed with one, too!

Happy Birthday, CalTech Dad - may God richly bless you this day, and may He bring many happy returns of the day as well.

Happy Birthday CTGDad!!

A father is the most important man in a girls life. He has more influence and offers more inspiration than any other man.

Thank you for doing such a GREAT job with your wonderful daughter! She is a great blog sister.

Did he have one of those bumper stickers on his car that read, "My daughter and my money go to Cal Tech"? ;-)
