Happy Birthday, mom!

While all you Americans are celebrating your 4th of July in fine form, there are different nation-wide events afoot on our side of the border. Today is my dear mom’s birthday. Pillar of the family, maker of many peanut butter sandwiches, and fine motivator of “getting me out of bed so I don’t miss the school bus”.

To celebrate, here we are. The complete and mighty White family collection, circa 1982. Good lookin’ bunch if I do say so myself. From right to left there’s my sister Angela, my mom Dianne, my dad Gerard and me on the end. We got the family photo taken then probably went for a nice meal at Morrison’s in downtown Kingston, Ontario. We lived in Kingston for the first half of the 80s.

It should also be noted that it was my girlfriend’s birthday on June 1st, my dad’s birthday on June 2nd and my sister’s birthday on June 20th. We eat more cake in June and July then we do all year round.

So this is for you mom. Never a dull moment, huh? Happy birthday!

    Pentaura, his birthday is actually June 2nd.

    Everyone else, thanks so much for the kind birthday wishes. I’m sure my mom will see them all on here.

    Departed93, if my parents promised a trip to the toy store after this photo shoot, that would explain my expression and my sister’s. Angela never cared too much for toys. Ha!
