Happy Birthday Tommie

On a foggy early Saturday morning twenty-four years ago we drove down Wheatland Road in Duncanville, Texas. Patty knew the baby was on the way. She had waited until almost too late to wake me. I may or may not have pushed the speed limit. There would be a doctor to deliver the little bundle, not a Daddy.

We made it to Charlton Methodist Hospital in the nick of time. Within about twenty minutes our New Year’s Eve baby girl was born.

Tonight Daddy will grill steaks, even if it rains. We will sing, share cake, and enjoy family.

Happy Birthday Tommie DeAnn! Dad and Mom love you.
