March 2 is the birthday of two of my all-time favorite men. The first one I never met, but I spent a lot of time with him and we share Dartmouth, though he is the class of 1925. Tomorrow is the the 104th birthday of Theodor Seuss Geisel, our beloved Dr. Seuss. I spent many hours reading his books and was especially enthralled with "If I Ran the Zoo" and "If I Ran the Circus." Do you have a favorite Dr. Seuss book?
Thanks, Dr. Seuss for the hours of fun and laughter that you gave to the world. In your honor here's a round of cupcakes.
We'll share some green eggs and ham, cupcake style!
The second March 2 birthday is my all-time favorite guy, my father, who was born March 2, 1917. He died in 1981, but not a day goes by without thoughts of him. Thanks, Daddy, for all of your caring and hard work. You had a great love of family, an extraordinary work ethic, and a deep commitment to our synagogue, community and country. I am a lucky, lucky woman to be your daughter.
My parents on their wedding day, March 2, 1947. Yes, they chose my father's birthday!
Wishes for a very happy March 2!
