Happy Birthday, Dad...

(My Dad on his birthday two years ago.)


It is no wonder that just the touch of another human being at a dark time can be enough to save the day.

I read at Chookooloonks that Wanda's dad is having a Happy Birthday!

from the book Happy Birthday to You!

_If We didn't have Birthdays_

If we didn't have birthdays,
you wouldn't be you.

If you'd never been born, well then what would you do?

If you'd never been born, well then what would you be?
You might be a fish!
Or a toad in a tree!
You might be a doorknob!
Or three baked potatoes!

You might be a bag full of hard green tomatoes.

Or worse than all that . . .
Why, you might be a WASN'T!
A Wasn't has no fun at all.

No, he doesn't.

A Wasn't just isn't.
He just isn't present.

But you . . . You ARE YOU!
And, now isn't that pleasant!
~~by Dr. Seuss
