My Pops

Today is my dear old Dad's 70th birthday!

My dad is one of the most amazing and interesting people I know.  He is smart, funny, friendly and loveable.  He has really strong opinions - about life, politics, religion....

This is a picture of him just last August when we spent some time with him in South Lake Tahoe while he was in the middle of his bicycle ride from Canada to Mexico!  This just a few years after he had done the Atlantic to the Pacific bicycle route.

After retiring he bought himself a motorcycle.  He had never ridden one before in his life.  He passed the course and license test and got right out there.  He rides in all temperatures - even ones that are way too close to freezing for me.  Now he has got himself a dirt bike motorcycle!!  What an adventurer.  What next, dad? - Base Jumping??

My parents enjoy RV'ing and recently added an adorable dog to their household.  I hope to enjoy so many more years of both of my parents and count myself very lucky that they are happy and healthy and such neat people.

Can't wait to see you guys in a few weeks!!

Dad and BoHappy Birthday, Dad!
