Now it’s time for ‘This Day In History’ brought to you by Carl who is celebrating his birthday today!
1946 Harry Truman becomes 1st US President to travel in a submerged sub
1945 Goldie Hawn was born
1963 Nicollette Sheridan was born (Desperate Housewife)
1959 Max Baer US, heavyweight boxing champ (1934), dies at 49
This was the only picture I could find of Carl but it sums up his family’s relationship with our family. Simply put, they are a part of our family. They are like any aunt, uncle and cousin.
When we sit around the house and warn our kids about talking to strangers we, of course, talk about the people who are safe to walk up to. Carl, Mary and Tori are at the top of the list. That’s quite a big deal, in my opinion. When it comes right down to it we all have a short list of people we would trust our kids too. They have provided Julie and I with a lot of opportunities to go out on dates over the years by giving up a lot of evenings at home to watch our kids. You guys have been a source of rest in a busy world!
Carl, today we celebrate you. We celebrate your love of friendship. We celebrate your love of gift giving. We celebrate you being an important part of our lives.
I invite everyone to join me in wishing Carl a Happy Birthday!
“Carl is really cool.” -James D
