60

No this isn't an article about Babe Ruth's legendary 60 home run total in 1927.

60 has meaning to the person who has always been the Babe Ruth figure in my life, my father. My dad is one of the best people anywhere and much of what I am and how I act is the result of him.

I am told by many that I look like my mom and act like my dad. My dad's family will say I look like him, but that's a blog for another day.

Yesterday was my dad's 6oth bday and 17people wants to wish him a Happy BDay and say how lucky my sister and I are to have him for our father.

I could go on and on about all the lessons I have learned or the sayings that have helped shape my life. "The hardest thing for a parent to say is no, but, no you can't go", being a particular favorite when I would ask to go to a party when growing up.

My dad has always, always talked about is the importance of health. Fortunately with few exceptions he is a very healthy 60 year old who still can beat me on the tennis court.

Happy 60th dad, wish you many more healthy years.
