Tony and I go back, back, back. How far? I met him 6 decades ago. We were way young then and have been best buds ever since. It's been one of the best rides of my life.
Between the two of us we've celebrated more birthdays than you could shake a stick at. And if you had all the lit candles over the years in one place you could see them from outer space.

What makes this one extra special is that his daughter Karley, my goddaughter, gets married this week. Man, will the tears be flowing that day. Smiles and hugs and I love yous too.
Very, very, special.
She's marrying a great guy, Sam Graham, and that day is gonna be a big partay. As Parliament sang, "We're gonna turn this mother out!"
Happy Birthday Tony.
Now, going home for that wedding means that when Denise and I land we go straight to see my father.

Great friend, great Dad.
Happy Birthday Dad.
I have to mention the massive crowds, the massive Women's March yesterday.
It was overwhelming.
And not only here but around the world. Not just Boston, Los Angeles, Washington and many more places but also Paris, England, Berlin, Greece, it went on and on.
I have to admit tearing up watching it all. Tearing up.
And those are a few thoughts.
