Bruce and Polly Gerencser and Family 2018

Polly celebrated her sixtieth birthday on Saturday. Our children, their spouses, and Polly’s parents joined her at Mancy’s Steakhouse in Findlay, Ohio to celebrate. Awesome food, generous libations, and great company made for a wonderful evening.

Here are several photographs I thought readers might enjoy.

I got four “you look like” comments:

  • Santa Claus
  • Italian mob boss
  • Jewish rabbi
  • Amish man

So, I can bring you gifts, put out a hit on you, bless you, or build you a barn.

    Barn, please.

    Polly looks wonderful. Doesn’t look 60, either. And your family is wonderful.

    Happy Birthday to Polly .

  2. Geoff

    Nice family pictures!

    As I’ve said before you are a Daniel Dennett lookalike, so I’ll add ‘compatabilist’ to your list (not that it follows generically).

  3. Zoe

    Welcome to the 60’s Polly. <3

    Happy Birthday!

    Happy birthday to Polly! It looks like you all had a great time together.

    I am going with sophisticated Santa. The Amish and Hasidim that I know of wouldn’t wear red – their religious rules would forbid it. But it would be fun to have a blessing from Rebbe Bruce….

    Happy birthday, lovely Polly! Mind that guy in the red shirt😀

  6. Troy

    Your father-in-law looks like he’s doing pretty well. Of course it is only a photograph and he is sitting down.

    I love how your family maintains a continuum between dark and red hair.

  7. Stuart

    Happy Birthday to your wife! I hope you both have as many healthy returns as possible.

  8. Becky Wiren

    Well, as soon as I saw yours and Polly’s delightful pic with you in your red shirt and hat, I started humming “Santa Claus is Coming to Town.” That was actually a nice feeling, reminiscent of when my parents were alive and I believed in magic. So see? You are bringing happiness where you go!

    And like I said in Facebook, Polly looks very nice. And you look great too! 😉

    That is an amazing, wonderful set of pictures. And I hope Polly had a very, very happy birthday. (On a semi-related note, I do like your apparent possible career choices…)

  11. Justine

    I hope you have many more!

  12. James

    Awww. You guys look great!!! Happy birthday.
