LIFE: Birthday greetings
A special salute today to my father-in-law, painter Peter Siddell, who celebrates his 70th birthday July 31 (which is today right now if you're with them in New Zealand, but tomorrow right here if you're not in New Zealand. Or it's yesterday if you read this Monday. Or two days before? Damn this International Date Line). That's one of his paintings right there above, by the way. They're even nicer in person.
Anyway, we in the Spatula department wish him all the best and wish we could be there.
(And how cool is my father-in-law? Cool enough that he asked for a Queen Greatest Hits CD and the new Harry Potter for his birthday.)
