Happy Birthday Pops!

May 15, 2007


On this, Brad’s birthday, I’ve been reflecting on how he’s learned and grown over the past year:

He learned how to spend exhorbitant amounts of money on a single real estate transaction,

How to live with drastically cut back video game playing time,

How to beat everybody at work in racquetball, and be beaten in his turn,

That Kyle needs to be changed immediately when a bowel movement is suspected,

The manly art of starting a fire in the grill, then leaving the actual grilling to his wife,

He learned how to play dozens of german style board games, became a contributing member of boardgamegeek.com, and learned how to buy board games in the name of various national holidays,

He learned the intricacies of pregnant woman relations,

He achieved age 21 on the Wii fitness test,

He became the last man standing when all his golf buddies went MIA due to various back problems,

He came to terms with being half way to fifty.

I have the best life imaginable and really credit you for that, Brad.ย  Happy Birthday my love!



  1. This is an awesome birthday post and makes me happy to have such a great brother and sister-in-law. Happy happy birthday Bradley dear!!! Also I want to see somebody make that cake.

  2. How come I have the most wonderful wife in the world?!!!!

    Just for the record, though, I’ve gotten an age of 20 on the Wii fitness test. ๐Ÿ˜›

  3. (Oh, and how many people do you suppose realize this is a reference to a book?) ๐Ÿ™‚
