Thanks for all the love and support you have given me and Nathan.
Thanks for being the BEST Obi to my boys.
Thanks for always being game for all the crazy things we do – Pirate costumes and all.
Thanks for never telling me I shouldn’t follow my dreams, and for thinking that I am smart.
If I could give you anything in the world I would you give winning seasons- championships even – for the Hogs, Cowboys and Yanks.
I would you give you a complete set of 1st Editions of all the Nero Wolf books,
a writing contract with Myrrh or Maranatha or Vineyard,
and I would give Mom a live-in housekeeper so the she would be always be happy, which always makes you happy.
Plus you would rule supreme over Fantasy Leagues, and none of your children or extended family, or friends, or local newscast persons would use poor grammar or syntax ever again, and your food would always be piping (and what I mean by that is scalding) hot. Even at fast food joints.
But instead of all that you are going to get this. Which Nathan swears is almost as good as all that other stuff combined…
Plus you get a lifetime supply of hugs and kisses from the boys – and me too of course!
I love you Daddy! Happy Birthday!!!
