lion flower



Happy Birthday to me! My dad wrote me today with this tidbit from the day of my birth:

"I just spent about 10 minutes daydreaming about Santiago, Chile, on July 26, 1962, Exact Spot: the Clinica Alemana. I'm standing outside the delivery room in a kind of side room when the doctor walks in holding you by the feet. You're bawling, He washes you under the sink faucet. I had just arrived after running up the stairs, out of breath. My timing was excellent. I'd just had an incredibly rush-hour drive across town after inaugurating a series of performance by the Chad Mitchell Trio." Dad

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!

That's a lovely memory from your dad, how special (mind you being washed under the tap while being held upside down by the feet sounds a little hard-core, hehehehe)

Hope you had a wonderful day :)

I think I need waaaay more stories about your childhood because your birth alone is more intriguing than the first 5 years of my life :)

You may have already been tagged, but...I have been tagged and I am tagging you anyway.
Here's how it works: Players list 8 facts/habits about themselves. At the end of the post, players then tag 8 people by posting their names and making sure they know they’ve been tagged by leaving a comment at the tagee’s blog. Have fun!
