That’s German for 19. Which has a very particular meaning today, Thom‘s birthday. Instead of spinning off into ultra-informative reminiscences — the late-night drive to the hospital and all the rest — I’ll offer something more pertinent to Thom’s current interests: On this date in 1987, Bon Jovi’s “Livin’ On a Prayer” was Number One on the Billboard Hot 100. And I admit I probably wouldn’t know it if I heard it.

Happy birthday, TB.

  1. Happy Birthday, Thom.
    I’ll never forget the first time I saw you, Thanksgiving day of 1987, Sacramento. You were 8 months old and came running out, between and under everyone’s legs to greet us. What a sight. You are a unique and wonderful young man. Again, Happy Birthday. Love, from SDB the Elder.

  2. Hi Mr. Thom…happy birthday. We’ll send you a little something from the east coast. jb
