A birthday

















::While I'm worth my room on this earth,
I will be with you.
While the Chief puts sunshine On Leith,
I'll thank him for his work
And your birth and my birth
::

-Proclaimers, "Sunshine on Leith"


Most people probably don't realize this about Keith but he is a sentimental type. He has nothing but good to report about all aspects of his childhood and the place where he grew up. I know he misses it and in fact, many of his dreams still take place in some version of the old green house he called home.

I suppose, in a way, I am a beneficiary of each unique variable that made him who he now is. He is generous and takes care of his family. He compliments me probably every day. He is smart and witty and makes me laugh. He is trustworthy and honest. He is a good father.

I'm hoping for a good year for him. Happy birthday, Keith.

Happy birthday to a former neighbor. I remember meetings in the green house, and playing Legos on the floor.

I don't know how smart you are, but you sure are a witty fellow and I am glad you can make Liane laugh too.

Hope you had a happy day!

I haven't noticed it as much lately, but when I was younger a significant number of my dreams took place in that house too. Happy Birthday!

What I meant to say was, Keith was raised in a greenhouse?

That explains a lot! =)

Still hope it was a great day!

I dream about that house probably once a week. Anyway, happy birthday yesterday. I think you're pretty great.
