a birthday wish

We managed to surprise my dad. My bro who flew up from LA stood at the door while the rest of the clan hid a few feet away. My dad thought it was just going to be a small family gathering of just me, my sis, and my mom. But you can't do 6-0 in a small way.

As the 6 candles were burning down (one for each decade), he addresses his siblings, in-laws, nieces, and nephews and says, "this picture (on the cake) was taken 30 years ago. 30 years ago I was worth $1. Today, I'm worth $50 million. Why? Because of all of you here. Each of you here is worth $1 million in my life."

That's dad for you. Always knowing what is truly valuable. Here's to many more years ahead!
