Today is Harry's 67th birthday.
Other than having a cold, I'm having a real good day. What have you done so far? I slept in and had carrot cake for breakfast. Are you thinking about seeing a doctor anytime soon for this cold that you've had for weeks? It's always a possibility.
We're going to have a nice dinner at William B's.
I know you're the grandpa of 20 grandchildren and the great-grandpa of 4. How do you feel about that?
Proud. It's kind of mind-boggling when you think about it. It's not something you would have foreseen in your future? No not at all.
Just looking at them and watching them grow and how much each one of them changes.
What were the highlights of the past year. This has been my first full year of retirement and it has been great.
Not having to get up early every day.
It's pretty awesome and at times pretty scary.
Play more golf and play golf with you.
And we're really looking forward to being in Colorado when Dan gets back from Afghanistan.
I like all the Chicago Sports teams. Except one.
I like sitcoms and we enjoy American Idol and Dancing With the Stars.
And every single night I have to have a bowl Doritos.
So Happy Birthday, Sweetie. I hope it's all you deserve and more and I hope the coming year is your best ever but not as great as the many years to come. (Oh, and if you're not feeling much better tomorrow, I'm dragging you to the doctor.)
