Birthday...

I am fifty-nine today and have just returned from an early dinner with three favorite friends. Our venue was Greek and a good time was had. Replete with a Souvlaki plate, the only rice pudding I ever eat, and a candle lit Baklava, I can say that loved the live music, the birthday dancing and the napkins that reigned down around our table amid cheers and clapping. Even the baby at the next table joined in.

Funny cat cards ruled the day as did calls, and unexpected gifts. Lukas knew something was up, venturing into my lap for the first time. Though he lingered but a moment, it was a sweet one.

Wishing everyone a good week. Cheers!

Happy birthday e.
A knee sit from your Lukas, however brief, would have to be just the best birthday present!

Lukas's gift to you was especially precious. Hugs.

Happy birthday! Those "Niners" are always a little strange to me, suspended on the brink as they are. You look greatly happy and how wonderful is that?
The very best in the year ahead!
