My sister took this picture of Dad the day after the party - because, of course, the day of the party we had torrential rain. When we were kids, he used to send us into the giggles by yelling "Pasta Fazool!" I am sure that was a better stand-in for other terms....
His surprise party was a complete surprise. The house was packed when he walked in and he just had the best time - as did we all. So a very happy birthday, Dad. I am so glad to have had you around to love for so many years. I hope there are many more.
