Many happy returns!

Happy Birthday! Live a long time and with great joy. Sixty is no age at all.


To keep learning; here’s joy in that. Thanks for the poem. I’d have read it differently, but it’s a nice listen and a nice gift to give us on your birthday.

Sixty? Why, you’re just getting warmed up. Happy birthday, and Merry Christmas!

Happy birthday, Peter. And a very Merry Christmas to you and yours. I should hope to live as long, as well and as wisely.

Happy Birthday Professor. May you continue to teach boys to be men for many years; vigilant and virtuous. In addition to the wisdom of the past. Merry Christmas and God bless you and your family, and the Ashbrook Center as well.

Wait, I thought you were thirty! Happy Birthday!

Happy (belated) Birthday Peter, and Merry Christmas to all.
