Happy Birthday Dad!



My dad turned 79 today. He was a little grumpy when I called him this morning. My mom forgot to wish him a happy birthday this morning. Then when he went to check the mail box he didn't receive a single card. I'm not sure my call by that time did much to cheer him. But then the unexpected happened. My dad goes faithfully every Friday to the Moorhead Athletic Associaton lunch at the Moorhead Country Club. His two brother-in-laws stop to pick him up and I know he so looks forward to going. My cousin, Rob, emcees the event and local coaches come and give talks about their team. Today, at the end of lunch, Rob told everyone it was dad's birthday. Not only did dad get a rousing round of applause, he got quite a kick out of it. By the time I talked to him tonight he was much more upbeat. The picture is of my dad with his two sisters who came to visit last week. My Aunt Elizabeth is on the left and my Aunt Helen is on the right. I have a feeling dad won't be as disappointed next year. I suspect turning 80 may hold a few surprises for him. But you didn't hear that from me!
