Also an excellent teacher librarian who spends hours working at home on his own time. He serves on the teachers’ union board because teachers’ working conditions (ie. class size) are students’ learning conditions.
He’s a soccer referee who gives back to his association by serving on the board as treasurer…
…and he still looks pretty darn good in shorts.
Even more importantly–he’s a very good daddy.
He is wise and kind, and he sees the world through a lens of compassion.
Not only that—the man bakes his own Christmas cookies!
Thom is of the very best vintage. Who could ask for anything more?
If I couldn’t have Thom…
…I might settle for Indiana Jones.
But let’s hope it doesn’t come to that.
When the time comes, maybe we’ll have Thom stuffed and put in a museum.
But for now, we’ll stuff him with cake and ice cream.
Happy Birthday, dear Thom, and many many more!
