Thanks to everyone for the birthday wishes! When the first few were coming in last week, I was so pleased that I made a promise to contact each person individually, thank that person and spend some time catching up with him or her about life events and how we know each other. Maybe make a plan to get together sometime. I started out strong and I’m going to stick with it. Unfortunately but happily, by the end of the day it became apparent that this is going to take a while! And I feel like it’s a great use of time. This Facebook thing just might take off.
As for my birthday, it was a great success. I’m still here and healthy. The only mishap occurred when the cake was too small for the abundance of candles and the resulting heat wave set off the alarm. . .Fortunately, no one was injured.
