“El Tio” is another year older today (and, um…wiser? not a chance!). Also known as John Philip Wyek, or LTO for short, tall and strange Mr. Tio is such a joy, and occasionally a pain, to have in our lives:) He is also the famous inventor of the “Tio cake”, a birthday cake made by Tio that more often than not has inedible ingredients and strange combinations of props.
To give you an idea of how we celebrate the good times, here are a few of my favorite snap shots of the birthday boy.
Happy Birthday, Tio!
My Dearest Meg, the Mega-Brat : I smile because you are my niece; I laugh because there is nothing you can do about it ! Much love, El Tio
Oh, yeah. Now I remember Uncle Tio. The redundant one. No, no. El Tio!
John, I remember you fondly from the wedding. Happy Birthday.
John is a cool dude. Actually, he is kind of a renaissance man! Happy Birthday.
