21 January 15

Today my Uncle Bob Kleppinger turns 94 years old! I chose my peppermint-stripes tie because I think he loves that candy and because he was my childhood "barber" -- we lived in nearby cities, went to the same church and visited each other frequently, including about every-other-Saturday for haircuts in the basement at 742 N. 7th St., Allentown, PA. Happy Birthday, Uncle Bob! (In the photo I'm holding my copy of the Kleppinger Family History, opened to a photo of the Frank Kleppinger family, from the 1950s. By the way, all six siblings in that family celebrated "golden anniversaries" with their spouses; Uncle Bob and Aunt Betty have shared 71 years together!)
