Today is the birthday of someone who is very special to me.
It's my daddy's birthday.
His 81st birthday!
He looks pretty darned good for 81 don't you think? I do.
Mom's not bad looking either (her birthday is coming up soon)
Ray Kroc opened the first McDonald's
Disneyland was opened in California
Alan Shepard became first man in space, John Glenn orbited Space, and Neil Armstrong walked on the moon
Roosevelt was elected President for 4 terms
Kennedy became the first Catholic President
Ronald Regan (yes an actor) became President
Obama became the first Black President
Some things he has seen in his lifetime are things that we take for granted.
He use to get his entertainment from a radio that was in the living room.
And then was one of the "special" kids who had a TV IN the house.
The microwave oven (where would we be without one?)
DVD and Blu-Ray Players
Some amazing things have happened in this lifetime for my Dad What a wonderful list of things I can come up with.
Oh and lots and lots and lots of candles on a birthday cake!
Happy Birthday Dad!
Sure wish were were there to celebrate with you.
