Judging by the number of fireworks seen and heard over the last few nights it's Guy Fawkes today. Much more important it is our lovely daughter, bdo's 20th birthday. Yes, Jeckle (of Heckle and Jeckle fame) is 20 today. She is spending the day at her army base. Her officers made a fuss of her last night, and the cooks sang Happy Birthday, so it's not all bad. As usual, I have to repeat the two most important pieces of advice from father to daughter. One, All boys are fools. Two, judge people by what they do and not by what they say.
We have the most wonderful, funny, sharp, beautiful, smart girl. It makes me smile just to think of her. Have a wonderful day and an extra special year, girly-bird. While the last 20 years have not always been easy, I would not swap them for the world.
