On Being A Gentleman
The world is full of boys and men. Gentlemen of any age are in shorter supply. Some equate being a gentleman with slick words or expensive clothes or a fat wallet. Those are superficial evidences that don’t prove the character of a man or whether he is in fact a true gentleman. Here are some words that give voice to who and what a real gentleman really is:
A gentleman makes the world a better place simply because he’s in it…that’s a quote from your Two Chums 🙂
I cannot let this day go by without acknowledging the most wonderful gentleman my life, Randy Northup, who I was blessed to marry 41 years ago and whose birthday we are celebrating today. He is celebrated everyday in my heart but by everyone else today. Happy birthday honey 🙂
Secondly, we are very fortunate to have another wonderful gentleman in our family, our son-in-law, Pete Scolinos, who was also born on this day. In so many ways he is very like his father-in-law, not the least of which he is one good guy and a real gentleman. Our daughter, Amanda says often with a smile, “I married my father!”
And thirdly may we wish another gentleman, our friend (who happens to be the father of another son-in-law) John Dilley, many happy returns of the day! Another good guy and true gentleman to be sure.
As it turns out, this was a good day for gentlemen to be born!
