I have to admit that I missed the actual day in July, but then I’m a little late in remembering most birthdays now. As you get older you work to forget all the extra candles on the cake. It’s is hard to forget the Big Mouse in our backyard and one that I first saw when it opened in 1955. I started to work there in 1966 and supported my way through college, and then grad school by working there. I still have many close friends so many years later.
The single biggest thing I thank Disneyland for is that is where I met the LRHG who became my wife, and mother of my two buy DN1 and DN2. It is now 37 years later, and still thankful for the day I first met her in the Inbetween – the employee cafeteria.
What a great place to work, with so many memories – sorry I missed your birthday!
