Comments: HB, TGOO!

Well Happy Birthday TGOO! Many happy returns of the day!

Finally, I know what TGOO stands for and who he is to you. I've never been sure and I must've missed the original memo. ha!

It's funny, I've been blogging so long, I never thought about people not knowing the cast of characters anymore. Dad will comment here as Angus of 'something'. So anytime you see that, that's him. If you see ~ that's my Mom. She goes my Mom, or sometimes Hubba. Heh. My sister is Mo, or Morrigan and my bro is TN.

Which brings me to my three boys, in order, Ringo, Mr. T, and Bones. (Bones is his real nickname.)

Your dad sounds like an awesome combination of the best traits of my mom and pop rolled together. Mom was the reader and family historian, pop, the jack of all trades and marksman. Three cheers and many more years!

Happy Birthday to your Dad. My Mom's 78th was yesterday. My Dad was still farming full time when he turned 71. My Dad would fight to the bitter end if it was during a game of dominoes (especially when we played Moon). I swear the man could count cards/domino tiles. Talking about widows peaks, all the male first cousins on my dad's side of the family look nothing alike, but they all have the same widow's peaks. Every single one of the. I love the stories of your family.

Happy birthday, TGOO!

I adore the tales about your father... He reminds me of a great Scottish chieftan when you speak of him.

We have my maternal line traced to the Mayflower and a bit beyond. Really, I'm becoming more sure we will find a close connection between us. ;)
