Happy Birthday, Dad!

It's that time of year again!

On January 17, 1942, a disturbance rippled through the Force, as if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror: A dad was born.

And then he met a Korean lady, and not long after, through a process that looked something like this...

...life happened in 1969:

Childhood was no picnic. Dad trained me hard in the ways of the dark side...

Soon, I was able to fight the best of the best:

And then Dad decided to have himself another little Vader in 1976:

...which gave the cat much joy...

...and also impressed the dog:

Dad had himself yet another little Vader in 1979...

And I suppose he decided that that was enough for one lifetime.

Dad's been retired since last June, but he's currently going through a refresher round of paramedic training. Must be that crazy "gotta help people" urge he has.

For having produced such twisted offspring, you'd never guess my father was a great man, but a great man he is.
