Today is the birthday of my big brother, UJ. Born in ’56, he turns 56 today, so there is a certain symmetry to the occasion.
Some of you may wonder how UJ celebrates his birthdays. After all, how do you properly commemorate a special day like a birthday when you already seem to spend much of your time tanned and shirtless in some exotic warm weather location, gambling and getting kissed on the cheek by a woman in a bikini — and occasionally holding some form of shellfish with your head apparently framed by a halo, besides?
I don’t quite know how to answer that question. All I can do is wish my big brother a very happy birthday, and invite the other loyal readers of the Webner House blog to join me in conveying heartfelt natal day wishes.
