Somewhere along the way, a few years ago, 31 became my son Tom's favorite number, and I forget the particulars of why that is.
Thirty-one years ago this very minute, Tom was born. And now he gets to spend a whole year being his lucky number. I hope it's his luckiest year yet.
Tom has a bit of a photographic mind, so he will probably remember that this photo is the same one I posted on my blog a year ago today. What can I say? It's a picture that makes me smile, so here it is again, and I'm smiling.
