Happy 65th Birthday Bob!

Bob perched in a tree during a rest break on one of our arroyo walks earlier this year
 Bob - a little birdie told me it's your 65th birthday today!  Have a very wonderful birthday.  I've so enjoyed having you a part of our family for the past 7+ years.  Here's a list of some of the many things I love about you:

  • You revel in introducing others to your annoying music collection.
  • You get excited like a 3 year old about stuff Chris gets excited like a 3 year old about - like satellite fly overs.
  • The way you love my mom and support her dreams.
  • Your love of cactus and your enthusiasm about sharing about them.
Bob and Chris sort through pots at the Desert Museum Greenhouses
  • That you cringe and roll your eyes whenever we mention CSI.
  • Your undying commitment to your family.
  • That your favorite car is your decade + old beater pick-up truck.
  • Your glee in working your land - especially if there is an axe or chainsaw involved.
  • That you think 'Airplane' is one of the funniest movies of all time.
  • That you treat Chris and I like we are your kids too.
I hope that this year brings you a lot of joy, fun, new annoying music discoveries, cactus planting, and satellite gazing.

Summer you got the list just right! I'll add one thing I love about Bob - he brews his own, quite excellent, beer! Here's to a fabulous year Bob - happy birthday!
