Happy Birthday, Daniel!

At the beach in Torres, RS, Brazil, January 1979.

PR and I were reminiscing this morning about that rainy, foggy Saturday morning 29 years ago. We'd been in Brazil less than a year, so having a baby "in Portuguese" made our first labor and delivery experience unique. I'm sure PR wondered where I'd learned all that "vocabulary"...

(Well, Daniel, now that you're 29, are you going to follow in Uncle Chet's footsteps and stay that way? Did he ever make good on his promise to pay you a dollar every time you told someone he was 29?)
