Just want to say that I have had such a nice birthday weekend. Probably one of the best in many, many years. Friday was great. After work I stopped by an old favorite restaurant, Trattoria Marcella, and Stevie, the chef, bought me dinner. I had a great conversation with a couple of young fellas (a couple, I think)...always so interesting to get perspective from younger folks.
Saturday was a nice shopping/seeing a couple of folks I hadn't seen for awhile and then a fun party at my boss, Karla's house. Nice to have my kids and Paul (who is working on a website for them) all come too. Received a couple of cards from friends out of town today and a couple of nice internet greetings, as well.

Sunday, my actual birthday, started with breakfast with Rebecca. Then the rest of the day, Ben, Rebecca and Paul devoted the day to helping me work around the yard...and such a beautiful day for doing so. What a very nice present from them. Then we all went to the Royale for a late lunch. A good contra dance, friend Joe's present of an outdoor piece of art (a fish)that he made,himself, completed a wonderful birthday weekend. Then I look forward to having lunch with friend, Richard on Monday.

Such a very nice birthday weekend. Couldn't be better.
