Happy Birthday, Mildred!

Happy Birthday, Chuck! I couldn't find a picture of you I was sure you'd approve of posting here (hey, one of the pictures had you with long curly hair...), so here's a picture you took in NC. Hope you're having a great day.

We had a good day with the Boojums yesterday, chatting and what not, stuffing our faces at our favorite restaurant, Karavalli (mmmmm), walking around the neighborhood and -- wait for it -- shopping for books at the Book Barn. I only bought three -- and we will be boxing up many more to take back to sell. It was hard to say good-bye to Perilous Cheryl and "Mr. Honey Balls" at the end of the day ("pardon me while I say 'Poppycock'!").

Thanks for TWO JARS of the world's best pickles!!

Yesterday I saw a grey heron over at Buckingham Lake, sitting hunched on the bank, waiting for some unlucky frog to come along. Very cool! Today other than the usual ducks and snails, I saw only a turtle pancake on Euclid. :-(

Off to the park soon for fun and games, part of a belated Lughnasadh celebration. So far the weather looks like it will stay pleasant. If you don't have anything to do, go idle with some juicy Peter Cook gossip.

Thanks for coming up yesterday! It was great to spend quality time with the Boojums.

Hey, we managed to wait out the showers today and my friend Cheryl and I ended up the champions of the games -- whoo hoo! We won a cake, but we shared it with everyone. It was a wonderful day at Tawasentha Park.

Thanks! And no, my birthday was nowhere near as turbulent as the surf that day.

Hurrah! Glad to hear it went well.

But the surf that day was exhilarating, eh? I could have stood there all day letting the wind blow through me.
