Today is a special day . . . because this guy?
And because every birthday needs a soundtrack, here's my song for Tom . . . on his 58th birthday.
You see, this year . . . well. It hasn't been an easy one. In fact, this year ranks right up there with some of the crappiest years of our 37 years together. In fact, I'd place this year in the #1 spot of our Top Five Most Challenging Years Ever list.
There was 1993. That was a frustrating year.
And 1999. Lots of growing pains.
2003 was particularly nasty. But only for a few very intense months.
2008. Yeah. That one was bad, too.
But 2016? Total shit storm.
But we're getting through it. Because that's what we do! We hold each other up. We light each other's path. We shoulder on. We head up north. We go to the gym. Basically, we . . .
Roll with it, baby.
Hang on and roll with it, baby.
Get on through it, roll with it, baby
Luck'll come and then slip away,
you've gotta move,
bring it back to stay
You just roll with it, baby,
come on and just roll with it, baby
You and me, roll with it, baby,
hang on and just roll with it, baby
So, happy birthday, dear Tom!
No matter what life brings us in the coming year, I know we'll roll with it.
Because that's what we do.
