January 11--today my Dad would be 99! And I always thought that he had the greatest digital birth date. You know all those hundreds of forms where you have to put in the month, day and year of your birth? Well, every time he had to, he put in great....and it would have been just as fun to put it in with the full year: 1-1-1-1-9-1-9.

So, here's to you Dad, a very cool guy with a very cool birth date: happy 99th on 1-1-1-1-8. Wish you were here!

We Shake With Joy

We shake with joy, we shake with grief.
What a time they have, these two
housed as they are in the same body.
