Daddy's birthday was on the 13 of this month. Called him up to wish him and he was in his usual sunny spirits. He told me that Mom had surprised him with a cake this time around. I was smiling to myself, Mom picking up tips from her children. I still remember on one of his visits here we had been to an airshow where you could also take a ride on a helicopter.
Dad casually asked me what I thought, and I said it was nothing for me. Dad immediately told me that it was not about me but it was he who was considering doing it :-)
He said he loved the whole experience.
