By the way...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO THE FAVORITE SON WHO WAS BORN 36 YEARS AGO TODAY AT 9:16 a.m. MOUNTAIN DAYLIGHT TIME IN DENVER, COLORADO, AT ST. ANTHONY HOSPITAL.

I will spare you the gory details, but he was in a hurry, born three weeks early, and took only four hours to be delivered. He continues to be the greatest joy of my life.

I called him this morning at 8:16 Pacific time, just to give him birthday greetings at the very moment of his birth anniversary.

:::chuckle::: I was three weeks late, 8 lbs, 8 ozs, ... but only 4 hours of labor. WHOOSH!

Problem is, I've always been in a hurry and never caught up with anything since!!

I remember waiting in the car outside the hospital while the big people went in to see the baby. I don't think that was why we were in Denver at the time, but I have vague four-year-old memories of the trip.

I remember your visit too, Joel. I remember that we tried to coax you into sleeping in the crib but you were adamant---no baby bed for YOU, you were a Big Boy. So you slept on an air mattress on the floor.

And you insisted on sleeping on that air mattress under the kitchen table! m
