My father is having his 80th birthday today, and has taken himself and my mother off to Paris to celebrate, which seems like a pretty good idea (except that the rest of us have to stay back here and work or go to school).
I hope you have better things to do today than read this, but just in case, Joyeux anniversaire dad!
My father died at 55, my mother at 75. My mother lost a leg to diabetes at 67, so her last years were not easy. Tell your parents to enjoy their golden years, and God bless!
