Happy Groundhog’s Day! (My birthday)

02 Feb

Today is my 66th birthday.  Really.  I am so grateful for the Lord’s goodness to me over the years (okay, the decades!).  I am very thankful for my wife Linda of almost 45 years, for my two children Brian and Amy, and for my/our six grandchildren!  I praise the Lord for my son-in-law Thom (who is a youth pastor in NC) and for my daughter-in-law Julie who is a terrific mom!

Yes, I’ve seen the movie Groundhog’s Day.  I personally think that any warm, subterranean creature who ventures out of his cave to prognosticate about the weather deserves to have his day declared a national holiday!  I thought you’d enjoy this Fiat commercial which features the little critter!

    Happy birthday, Larry. Seems like only yesterday that you and Jay Phelan were doing your hilarious Smothers Brothers routine at Emmaus. All the best.

    Happy Birthday Larry. It must be nice to be so young. Birthdays are the days when you reflect on your past and the accomplishments you have achieved. You might also think of the years ahead. For these I wish you many, and hope they will by joyful and full of happiness.
