Happy Birthday Jeff! Some Road Trips With My Son To Celebrate The Day!

Happy birthday to my son Jeff!

As you can see from the photos above, life is a series of special moments that when combined together, showcase all of the great things about the people who make our world better.

My son Jeff and daughter Jessica are empowered, successful people who bring Alex and I so much happiness, and I want to share some of the special moments we’ve had – you know, like the time that Actresses Sarah Chalke and Judy Greer asked for a picture of him in a bar!

Turns out he looked like a co-worker of theirs!

But what I love about this is that, because Jeff is so likable and approachable, they had no problem striking up a conversation with him – he’s relaxed, friendly and engaging, no matter where we are!

And of course, the family now includes Jeff’s wife Linet – we had such a special wedding last year and they just finished a trip to Greece to celebrate their one year anniversary – and of course, we’ll always bow down to the Queen Stella!

Yes, she may have eaten more wedding cake than anyone else that night, but she IS the Queen after all!

Of course, regular readers of this blog have travelled the world with Jeff:

Alex, Jeff and I went to Tokyo, where we ate great sushi, and Jeff discovered an incredible musical Artist in the city’s famous Golden Gai district:

Joined by Jeff’s friend as well, we entered one of Tokyo’s microscopically small bars and we treated to a live musical performance!

And Jeff and I took a road trip in the summer of 2018 that included a visit to see “The Thing!”

Well, we saw it, and if you click on the story you can see it too!

    • I do not have you as a follower so I can’t do that, but I believe you can “unfollow” and have your email removed. I will also try to do it later when I can…you will be removed in some way soon
