Happy Birthday Dad

Today is my dad’s 74th birthday. Because his dad died before he turned 50, Dad was convinced he would never see 60. Well, he has gone far beyond that and then some, and I for one am glad of it. Whenever he answers the phone and declares to my mom, “It’s the mouth from the south,” or talks to me about the Bears as either “a bunch of bums” when they lose or “lucky” when they win, I smile and send up a silent “Thank you, God, for Dad.” I would declare him “the greatest thing since sliced bread,” but everyone knows, of course, that title is reserved for Mom alone.

Upon reading that last sentence, I am certain Dad will say to Mom, “What am I…Chopped Liver?”
