I just called my parents' house to wish my dad a happy 70th birthday. Mom answered. I asked to speak to the Birthday Boy. :) Turns out he can't come to the phone because he's out in the yard painting a door. I said, "You put him to work on his birthday? What the heck is this?" But it was Dad's idea to do chores on his birthday.
So Go, Dad, Go! He'll call me back later when there's no risk of getting paint all over the phone. :)
