My dad, Pop Mannion, has never worried about age. Or never let on that he's worried. He's always said, whenever another birthday has rolled around, "What does the fact that the earth takes 365 days to revolve around the sun have to do with me?"
The earth's travels through space may not matter to him, but every April 27 they matter to Mom Mannion, their 6 kids and matching daughters and sons-in-law, and their 14 grandchildren.
It gives us another chance to cheer loudly and long for Pop!
Happy Birthday, Dad!
Love, Lance, the blonde, the 11 year old, and the 9 year old!
