My father-in-law, Eldon Byron Comfort, turns 99 on Tuesday, October 4th, 2011. He was a teacher and then a principal. He has been retired for 34 years. Eldon is an inspiration to me – and others – in the life-long learning department. He embraces the internet and digital technology and completely gets the part about connecting people.
Some of Eldon’s views about the world – and how it works – have changed over time. Some things have not: the importance of family is paramount; much else is mutable.
I hope to benefit from Eldon’s wisdom on everything from the Blue Jays to butterflies and flowers to “what makes boys tick” for years to come… I should live so long. Happy birthday, Eldon.
