Happy Birthday to my dad

Today is my dad's birthday. He turned 74.....I look at him and REALLY can't believe it, but then, I'm not 6 anymore, am I? A came up with the idea of a surprise. P, my sister, her boyfriend and two of my dad's lifelong friend's and their wives all went to a local restaurant and surprised him. This is his 3rd surprise party. I gave him surprise parties at 50 and 70! Seems he is easy to surprise! My dad sure deserves happiness. He had a tough life growing up and has worked VERY hard his entire life. He graduated from high school at 16, while working my grandparents farm before and after school. My dad is an inspiration and everyone that meets him loves him. I sure do too.
