Back in the fall of 1950, a round-headed boy was born, and the world was a better place.
Yes, I could be talking about Charlie Brown, who is about to celebrate his 60th birthday (not that he’s aged any).
Actually, I’m referring to the Mister, another round-headed fella, who turns 60 today. He also looks pretty much the same . . . well, except for that full head of hair.
The Mister grew up as the youngest in his very-supportive, very-loving family. He remains close to his older siblings, Carol and Mike.
A hard-working business owner, the Mister’s greatest success has been as a father to our two sons. He’s always been there for them, rarely missing an athletic contest, concert, or awards ceremony. I have no doubt that if they’re blessed with children of their own (please!), both of them will be wonderful dads, because they’ve had a terrific role model.
Charlie Brown may be the more-famous sexagenarian (a funny term for a cartoon character), but the Mister is our household’s fan favorite.
Happy 60th birthday, Mister!
