To Jonas: On seven years of good luck – a whisky in celebration

To my brother-in-law Jonas,

December 8, 2004 I saw you just after you came round.
“Nice haircut,” you said.
“You’ve seen better days,” I thought.
But then again, you didn’t look bad for someone who’d just donated a kidney.

Today is the seventh anniversary of that haircut and also your heroic gesture. It changed your sister’s life – my wife, and no doubt, has made my life immeasurably easier.

A whisky is on its way today to you as a token of gratitude for this year; another healthy one.

Here’s to you, and to all who have done as you have, thank you!
