Good-natured rivalries and happy birthdays

The picture above illustrates an iconic sports rivalry: Stanford vs Cal.

Happy birthday and many happy returns to our two sons-in-law, Mike Blomquist (February 5) and Rick Livengood (February 7). We are happy to have them in our extended family!

Throughout the fall and winter they keep up a friendly football rivalry: Rick is a Green Bay Packers fan and Mike is a fan of the Minnesota Vikings.

When we visited the Blomquists in Minnesota in August I spotted two totems in the windows of a gift store that I knew would make perfect birthday gifts for our Aquarians.

Here they are, posing and hamming it up.

Happy birthday, Rick and Mike!
