Happy 70th birthday, Banadad!

Happy 70th birthday, Banadad!

Many happy returns.
Now everybody reading this, get back to work! As my Gaffer would say, you're all a bunch of lazy kids! ;-)

Oh, and here are a couple of stories about Banadad's youth.


(Click image to enlarge.)
Dr. Charles Kuei-Yen Hsu (Xu Guiyan), He Who Carries Many Pharmaceuticals (HWCMP, viewer's left), at age 23 in 1958. His brother, Connie and Ruby's father, Dr. David Kuei-Yu Hsu (Xu Guiyu), is standing to the viewer's right. Each of them is holding one of several generations of cats that the Hsu family raised in Taipei, Taiwan.

Like father, like son?
Hrm, perhaps.

Wow, those are pretty amazing stories. When did your folks come to the States? I would imagine there's a pretty fascinating story there, as well.

1963 (dad) and 1969 (mom)
My dad came here for grad school (M.S., University of Louisville, KY; Ph.D. Chemistry 1974, Emory University, Atlanta, GA) and my mom to finish an undergrad degree (B.S. Medical Technology, University of TN Knoxville). They met in 1970 and married in 1971. My mom had gone to nursing school and was a registered nurse in Taiwan, and she taught for a couple of years, as did my dad (as an instructor in Chemical Engineering at National Taiwan University).
