Happy Birthday Dada Abbu!

So, Dada Abbu is quite a character and, I haven't really talked about him much so here's a post dedicated to him...

DA is a military man. He's loud, fiery, passionate and rather charismatic. Although he's just 5 feet 2 inches tall, he has a presence. When he walks into a room, people look, and listen. Mashalah, he commands respect. He's always looks impeccable... ironed shirt, polished shoes, a nice tie... extremely proper and neat. I like that in a man :-). On my Mayoun though, he wore a Hawaian shirt... with khakis. I remember him walking up to the stage swinging his cane and it made me smile :)

DA's done a lot for people... he's generous in his own way, and he sticks to his principles... I'll always remember him as a content man... Master of his destiny, independent and comfortable in his own place with his feet propped up on a footstool, reading the newspaper, munching Planters peanuts and sipping chai.

Mashalah, he just turned 88.., May you have many many more!
