Today is Ma Père’s birthday. As I say to him, happy solar circumnavigational anniversary day to him. He’s the greatest man I’ve ever known. I know I say that every year, every day, even, and I know that I’m biased. But, I think some others are in agreement with me. I see it from them. How can you not love the man? He’s just great. If when I die, I can say that I’m at least a fraction of the man he was, I’ll have died a happy and fulfilled man. If I can be only slightly the father he is, then 3B will have had an awesome one. I am proud to carry his name, to which I also gave my son. Happy birthday, Pop. I love you immeasurably.
Oh! And, happy would-be birthday to Elvis Presley and David Bowie, today, too.
Until tomorrow, same blog channel…
