We need a soundtrack today . . .
Once upon a time, a little boy was born.
He grew up with his little sister (and, eventually, his little brother) on a farm in Illinois. He worked hard, wasn't terribly fond of school, and always loved tinkering with things.
He grew up and fell in love with a girl from Innisfail, Alberta.
They got married, and had two daughters. There were pets and cars and houses and moves and friends and hobbies and adventures all crammed in there.
Life .. . was good.
And 80 years passed . . . in the blink of an eye!
Happy birthday, Dad!
Let the good times roll.
