Perry Lutheran Home assistant administrator, unquenchable PEGASUS-TV 12 volunteer, ubiquitous presence at ribbon-cuttings and long-time devotee of church dinners Doug Wood has reached a milestone: his 50th birthday.
Wood — known among friends as much for his passion for vanilla shakes, his insistence that the old tan-colored M&M’s had a different taste than the other colors and his staunch conservative outlook as for the metaphysical pleasure he receives from complimentary beverages — said, in his usual effusive style, that his 50th birthday meant “I am now 50 years old.”
The sartorially eloquent Wood has videotaped Perry athletics, community meetings and events and a host of other activities and gatherings since December of 1996. He continues to deny rumors that an entire storage locker somewhere in the community is packed, floor to ceiling, with thousands of hermetically sealed copies of each event he has taped.
We encourage those who know Doug to leave comments and wishes for him … to sign, as it were, this birthday card for our dear friend.
