90th & 65th
I said yesterday that I was spiffed up with a haircut and beard trim, but I didn't say why: big event today.
My parents 65th Anniversary was December 27th, but that isn't a very good time for a large party that may spill outdoors, so it works better to combine that with my dad's 90th birthday.
If you do the arithmetic, you'll realize that they were married 20 days after the Pearl Harbor attack. Not a coincidence. Does that make a Hawaiian shirt a tacky choice? I hope not. I don't think I'll wear the one with the battleships sunk at Pearl though. Not the patchwork either. I'm still making up my mind.
