Happy Birthday, Old Man.


Today is my father’s 55th Birthday.


Dear god, he’s old.

Still, I just wanted to give him a special birthday shout out.


I think that many of you know that my dad is pretty much my hero, and I’ve written as much many times in the past.

Here’s a short list of those things:

My father, My Hero

Second Hand Advice

Lessons from My Dad


You’re probably getting the picture that he’s a pretty big source of advice for myself and my siblings. He’s taught me a lot about so many things, and he continues to do so every day.

Of course, you if you want the best advice, you go to the source, and thankfully my dad has written a bit of advice that I put up on the site way back in the early days of my blog.

Life Lessons


So, in conclusion:

Happy Birthday, Dad!


PS: If you want to know more about my dad and his semi-retired adventures in Celebrating Home interior design, you can check out his website or his Facebook Page!

If you bug him enough, you might get him to share some of his secret recipes. I doubt you’ll get him to give up his Chicken Soup Recipe, though, but you should try because it cures all illness with just one bowl.

No foolin’.

    Dude…Double Nickels is so not old….so not old….so not old……..*whimper*

    Somebody hold me, please…..

    (Happy Birthday to your Dad!)

    1. Yeah, I should probably stop calling him old now that I’m gaining on him in the age ratio category. It is no longer 2:1, and will slowly creep down from here.

        No, no, no…hells bells and shotgun shells, I call my dad The Olde Man…have for years.  Term of Endearment and all that.  No, the reason YOU shouldn’t call your dad old is because I’m pretty close to his age.  If he’s old, where does that leave me?

    Thank you son. The nice thing about getting old is: When I tell a joke, everybody has to laugh. If I fart, I can blame anyone in the room…especially the dog or the grandkids. Of course, wearing socks with sandles i way up there on that list. But the greatest thing is, every day is a new beginning for me. I meant that…because I can’t remember yesterday.Now what was I talking about? Oh yea, the ruhbarb might not be so good this year….
