Happy Branko birthday!

Today is my father’s birthday and we have been celebrating all weekend. This post will have three galleries: of dogs, of goodies, and of our past year together.

It’s not every year that you hit 77, currently the most popular Slovenian number:

This year we are together on your birthday for a change, but throughout the year you like to tease me with dogs and food. You keep sending me photos of dogs that you meet or that come on a visit. Now there is only one around, our bestia.

Just as much you like sending me photos of the goodies you make, and when I arrive you make many new ones. Sometimes we go out to try other people’s too.

And finally, these are our summers, previous and this year’s. We couldn’t see each other during the year but at least I’m here now. The most memorable day of last summer included a trip to Maribor, your city of birth. But let’s start with two photos that you sent me.

Happy 77th birthday, Dad! You know that you are my superhero too.

  1. What a lovely celebration of your Dad’s #77. (Hmmm…. where have I seen that number before??) Your dog photos are adorable; your Dad looks so happy. And the food is divine. How many wonderful memories over the past year! I’m happy for all of you.
