Happy 74th Birthday

Today is my fathers birthday.
He is 74 years old.
That means he is 888 months old.
He is 3,862 weeks old.
He has been alive for 27,028 days and
that makes him 648,688 hours old according to my calculations.

He was born on a Saturday, March 19th 1932. That makes him a Pisces. Born in a leap year. He was born in the Chinese year of the Monkey.
