Happy Birthday to My Dad

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 8:08 am



As I have done every March 17 since I started this blog, I am wishing my Dad a Happy Birthday.

It is a tradition to note my previous similar posts on this special day. And so I am.

He would have been 95 today.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

  1. Happy Birthday, Patterico’s dad. May he rest in peace and/or enjoy as vigorous an afterlife as he desires.

  2. The first two links don’t work because the stuff transferred here from Blogspot appears to have been lost, I think in a disaster responding to spam trolls a couple of years ago. I have not been motivated enough to deal with that. Everything and everybody dies, and I guess those early posts died a little before their time.

  3. The Wayback Machine has a snapshot of the first two links; I tried getting them through the spam filter, even putting spaces in them to be removed later, but they got eaten up. You might look for my comment from a minute ago wherever spam goes if you like and want to update your post with direct links to those snapshots.

  4. Happy Days.

    Lost my Pop in Sept. He would have been 91 on March 4.

  5. I’m sorry to hear you recently lost your father, harkin, and at the same time happy he was loved by you and lived a long life.

  6. I know you aren’t in the office today, but are you sporting the shamrock bowtie anyway?

  8. Again, condolences, I know you were close. In a way I envy your for that.

  9. I lost my father a few years ago, as well. I raise a glass to your father’s memory, Patrick.

  11. Tip of the cap to you, P.

    My old man would have been 91– his box rests on the mantle near the TV [so he can hear the baseball and football games] and gets a ‘pat’ every few days or so- though we suspect he’d have much preferred to spend eternity in a bottle of J&B– or a Pabst Blue Ribbon can.

  12. Happy (belated) birthday to him. I love this tradition and I hope you keep up your insights, wit, logical, and (sometimes) snark for many years to come on this blog so you can continue wishing your dad a happy birthday.

    Just saw this. No, it would have looked too odd with my T-shirt and shorts.
