Happy Birthday, Dad!

Happy Birthday, @Dan Holohan! Today I'm celebrating the best dad and friend a gal could ever have.

When I was little, Dad and I told my three sisters we were going to the hardware store and he took me to an amusement park. We had a great day - just the two of us. And he'd always say that I was his favorite kid.

Fast forward a few years - my sisters and I are having a few drinks together and my twin says, "I'm Dad's favorite. He even took me to an amusement park as a kid." It turns out we all had similar stories and Dad had some explaining to do when we got home.

Happy Birthday, Dad. You're my favorite! ;)

    Happy Birthday Dan. I truly appreciate all you taught me by your books through the years. And I will never forget receiving a written personal reply to a letter I mailed you many years ago, asking you to clarify some things in "pumping away". You rock! Enjoy your day!
