The older I get, the more I value family and friends. Chachi is like both to me. You can also add a bunch of other titles, like mentor and probably even psychiatrist.
Today I want to take the opportunity to wish Chachi a great birthday and to also express my appreciation for his friendship. Where is Andrew Gold and his "Thank You for Being a Friend" music?
As you celebrate with your awesome family today, know that somewhere I will be raising a frosty Coke to you today! Happy birthday, Chachi and thank you for being my friend.
