Another Birthday

There's another birthday in my family. No, not mine yet.  Today is Ed's special day.  For 4 months during the year, we are the same age and then in June I forge ahead.  Just look at all those candles.

Ed was born in Derby, Connecticut and  grew up in a wonderful Italian family.  This is Ed in the first grade.  School was not his forte, but it looks like he was smiling that day.  Pretty cute in 1956.

I didn't meet Ed until my senior year at Western Michigan University and it was love at first sight.  I'm glad he decided to head off to college and especially follow his brother to Michigan.

After graduation, Ed came out to Colorado to attend an Outward Bound session based in Vail. After that he moved to Fort Collins and started his graduate degree in Range Science.


Can you believe he ended his academic career as Dean of the college where he started at CSU.  That's a wonderful accomplishment.

 Ed's favorite sport to play is handball. He just placed second in the Great Gorilla  handball tournament!

Wishing you a very Happy Birthday
Love You

Until Next Time-Kyle
