Himself has a birthday to-day.
He is now 88 years----

Here we both are--pre-children years---living it up in Ottawa!

Here is Himself holding Son #1---Himself was an Intern here---living in Ottawa.

Son #1 is older here---
And then came, 4 more children, with Himself taking on a job, in a clinic in the North.

I tend to laugh a lot about himself over the years----
It's because of his "uniqueness"--
Himself was born in Jamaica--became a Canadian citizen, maybe 20 years ago, after finally deciding it wasn't worth all the hassle, every time we crossed the U.S Border, to visit my parents, living in Florida. He was raised in Jamaica , with parents who emigrated from China. "Help" was cheap in Jamaica---so he never had to wash a car----clean anything---do anything other than go to school and help in the family businesses.
Coming to Canada must've been a culture shock---but he never complained--He spent many years living in Cincinnati--graduating with an MA in Business, only to return to Jamaica, and deciding to do Medicine.

He is NOT overweight--never eats dessert----never eats between meals---always eats a big breakfast---loves rice, green tea, and all kinds of vegetables---
He is extremely kind --not so patient, but who would be, living with me, and all my kids, and dogs--and my inability to scrimp and save too much money, which I am trying hard to do.
We do come to blows----mostly due to my feminist views clashing with his old Chinese beliefs that women should be seen, and not heard too much!
Lord love a Duck!-----That doesn't work out too well around here!

Himself is my best friend, on most days---and we are living life the best way we know how---on most days--*S*

We were in Vancouver here with our daughter--

Happy Birthday Himself!
