Happy Birthday Felix

My family is riddled with "Jose" not ho-SE in Spanish but zho-ZE in Portuguese.  To distinguish the many zho-ZEs in my family my brother Joe was always "Felix" at home. Not the English pronunciation of feelix but pronounced  feliz with the z sounding like sh.  Say felish

Felix was my paternal grandmother's maiden name and it sounds lovely in Portuguese. Almost anything sounds better in a romance language.

If we lived near we would all give you a big hug. 

A heartfelt Happy Birthday.
