My mom and dad (especially dad^) have taught me the importance of a sense of humor and to not to take life too seriously. Babies:) 33 years since the day they met! My dad NEVER took off work, but on Friday the 13th, 33 years ago his friends convinced him to call off last minute to go to a party at their friends house….the night that he was then so reluctant to blow of work for the 1st time to go to a party is what he now says was the best decision he has ever made because it was the night he met my mom. . .
