Another Birthday

I was sure April 25 was today, so I missed the birthdays of two of my favorite gentlemen in their seventies. Everybody here knows David, but the second birthday fellow is not on the blog.

He’s one of the only two Ukrainians I know in this whole region, and he was brought here as a small child by Ukrainian parents who escaped from the Nazis who had sent them to work camps, then escaped from the Soviets who wanted to do the same, and then didn’t stop running until they got all the way to Illinois.
