Happy Birthday, Dad!

Today is my dad's birthday, and I won't say which one (not because the number is too high but rather because it's not for me to say).

Every now and then dad used to joke — or half-joke — that he didn't expect to live past 55. He passed that some time ago and is still going strong as they say.

He might now joke that he's living on borrowed time. I like to think that he's accrued this "extra time" fair and square for a host of reasons and memories and that he's owed it. And a lot more besides.

Love you, dad. Happy birthday.

Thanks Roblin,love you too, looking back from 68 is richer than looking ahead. Memories are better than furture unknowns.
