Happy Birthdays

Today is the birthday of several major league baseball players.

Noodles Hahn, Clipper Flynn, Josh Booty, Sterling Hitchcock, Shag Thompson, Amby McConnell and Luis Aparicio, among others.

Frank "Noodles" Hahn played for the Cincinnati Reds from 1899 to 1905 and then for the New York Highlanders in 1906. Of the 231 games he started, he completed 212 of them.

"Closers? We don't need no stinking closers."

It is also the birthday of my daughter, Caroline. She turns five today. Tonight we will go out for dinner where she will feast on "chicken and fry-fries" and then to the Build-a-Bear workshop where she will get to make a puppy. Both sets of grandparents are in town. A bigger family celebration will happen on Saturday.

Happy Birthday, beautiful one.


  1. My daughter just went to "Build-a-Bear Workshop" on Sunday and built a ... bunny.

    I said, "You can make bunnies at 'Build-a-Bear Workshop"?

    And I got: "Dad ... I told you."

    And so it continues.

    Happy birthday to your daughter.

  2. Happy Bithday to Caroline (a few days late but the celebrating should continue). Hope you ALL had a wonderful weekend !
