Dear Thom


You have a special gift for celebrating people and making them feel special and loved. For that reason, even though you’d prefer I didn’t, I have to celebrate you. You are one of my favorite people. No one could ask for a kinder, more generous, thoughtful or loyal friend.  You’re better than Lassie! MWAH!

Happy Birthday, Thom. I love you.

P.S.  Since you wanted your birthday kept low key, I only put it here on the blog, on Facebook and on Twitter. I was going to put an ad on the news but I don’t know what station you watch.


        1. I had to Google Joanie & Muriel before I had any idea what you were talking about. You are going to have to keep me appraised of what movies I should be watching since I never turn the TV on and see the ads.

    1. Amanda — there are a couple of more photos along this vein in my archives. Thom and Susan were here around the first part of June.

  1. I do wish Thom a great birthday, but sympathize with him even more.

    Plus, I would have gotten away without seeing the pinocchio tatoo if you’d kept still.

    1. Doug — I am so glad I spoke up then. I would have hated for you to miss that, however, I didn’t need a reminder of it, thanks.

  2. I don’t know Thom, but from all I’ve seen on your blog, Sylvia’s and Susan’s, he must be the best sort of friend to have around. Happy Birthday, Thom!

    1. Kay — I don’t think friends come any better. He rescued us when our car broke and loaned us his, ran errands me when I was ill and Charley was out of town, has driven us to and picked us up from the airport, in short he has shown us aloha in the true sense of the word.

      Anytime you want to meet Thom, just run down to the Queen Kapiolani bus stands and look for the bus driver that matches his avatar.

  3. ROFLMBO!!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY THOM!!! I would have rented a plane to carry the message across the beaches of Hawaii…

    1. Carletta — in this pic he was in my living room, and I can sadly assure you he isn’t there now. When I talked to him today via email he was at work. That doesn’t sound very kicked back, does it?

  4. If I recall correctly from all his memes, I think that you can count your blessings that Thom was wearing clothes while lounging in his bed. 😛 LOLOL 😀

  5. Happy Birthday to Thom!!! you have the honor of sharing this birthdate with my dearly departed. Great men, great date.

  6. If I didn’t love you I would say BITE ME. pffft. Thank you one and all for the comments. I really appreciate them. Q BITE ME!!! Now you know I say that with all the love in my heart. Well on the other hand…maybe not. Who knows. You just can’t keep a secret from anyone any more.


    Me Ke Aloha 🙂

      1. I don’t know what he’s complaining about. Last year he had a CONTEST for people to guess when his birthday was. From that I got the feeling that he wanted everyone to know. LOL 😀

  7. Happy Birthday (belated) to Thom! I love the picture. It looks like he´s counting how old he is on his fingers… 🙂

    1. Betty — it does look sort of like his fingers are touching but if you look closer that’s an iPad he’s holding and he was either blogging or emailing.
