Today we’d like to wish my Uncle George a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!!! We hope he has a GREAT day!
This is always a kind of bitter sweet day… because not only is it Uncle George’s birthday but it’s also the day Da (1995) and Lucy (2011) died. But Uncle George’s birthday makes it more sweet than bitter. If, for some reason, taking us (me, The Wife and The Kids) out to eat would make this a great birthday for him then we are willing and able.
