This year marks some milestone birthdays in our family, and today’s belongs to my dad. I won’t reveal the special number, but, well, let’s just say it rhymes with “nixty.”
In honor of him, here’s a post that has pretty much nothing to do with community. But I hope you’ll join with me in wishing him a Happy “Nixtieth” Birthday.
10 things I've learned from my dad over the years, in no particular order - How to fry the perfect egg, ice a cake, and make strong coffee. - It is probably not a good idea to go chop down trees in the woods by yourself. - Do not call anyone after 9 pm. - Teenage boys really do have only one thing on their minds. - If you're respectful, anything is up for discussion. - Dying my hair green would only make me look stupid, not him. - The best conversations happen after dinner. - Always offer dessert, even if it's just the bin of Little Debbie snacks. - Sometimes a generous tip to a grouchy waitress is being Christ to her.
And last, but certainly not least,
- Why, yes, you can reheat coffee in the microwave.
Happy Birthday, Daddio!
