Birthdays again.

Happy birthday, xnamkrad

You were born 69 years after my maternal grandmother, 29 years (but a day) after my mother, and oh my god, it's my nephew's birthday tomorrow as well. I hate the January - March birthday rush. If you weren't born in that 01-01 to 31/03 quarter, you're not part of my family. Even my first wife managed that, though these days, I can stop worrying a day earlier, when bellinghwoman has her birthday.
