|Evan with Maddie and a delighted Oz. And my cake.|
Today is Evan's 42nd birthday, coming on the heels of my 70th and just ahead of grandboy Oz's 5th. I looked online and found what is considered to be Memphis' best bakery and ordered up this lovely cake for the occasion and my daughter-in-law confirmed my guess about the bakery: it is a doozy. She promises much future business there (or in the downtown store).
As I mentioned to Evan, I am proud of him for many things, but mostly for being an exemplary father and husband. People talk about military heroes, emergency heroes, cowboy heroes, Olympic heroes, but for my money, Evan is the equal of any of them simply by being who he is, working hard, being a good citizen and a solid family man. That's heroic in my overall play and it deserves a huge, glossy, silver trophy.
