April 30 is an auspicious day. Not only was Mr. Sam born on this day, in 1980 (wow, that makes me feel old!), but I met Diana Gabaldon for the first time on this date, back in 2015, at a library event and book signing. Mom was there, and we sang happy birthday to Sam as the closing of the Q&A (wish I had that video to share!).
It’s an auspicious date for me personally, too. So Happy April 30thth! May good things happen for you today.
In honor of the big man’s 41st, I am publishing a favorite recent interview with him. I asked a crew of very with it fans for their favorites, and the one most often mentioned was this one. I listened to it, and I have to agree. Excellent, at ease, thoughtful, thorough visit with Sam. (Thank you to Sam and Nicola Roy, and also to my with it fan friends, Jill Rosoff, Joan Fader, Jennifer Schneider, Lisa (Laj), Susan Treglia and Susie Weatherley!)
Here are a few other mentions for Sam’s big day… I may add more as the day goes on, if you’d like to check back.
Happy happy birthday to this legend of a man… May this year bring you all the health, happiness and success you deserve. Honoured to know you and so grateful I was lucky enough to get you as my work hubby … Much love Hoooohan xxxx
