Happy Birthday Dr. Larrin S. Thomas, Ph.D.

Now you get your PhD at the beginning, and the end. With the added middle initial (S.), and the period in Ph.D. For extra class and distinction! :)

I prefer Happy Birthday Dr. Larrin S. Thomas, Ph.D. That way you get the PhD at the beginning and the end. Add the middle initial (S.) and the period in Ph.D for extra class and distinction.

Happy Birthday Larrin. Appreciate your work and also friendship over the years. I will put your new book next to "Tool Steels" on the shelf and that's all I need for reference. Tool Steels will gather dust. Phil

That’s very generous, Sal. I will think about it. My wife says she would rather you give me a job in Golden. ;)
