A Birthday in the Park
Yesterday I had not one but two birthday celebrations: a delicious brunch (Eggs Benedict) with my son, granddaughter, and visiting sister-in-law, and a High Tea at the park/playground with my daughter-in-laws friends, whose children are the ones said granddaughter is most comfortable ignoring (at two and three-quarters she has announced "I don't like people, only my family and 'my guys'" - her mammoth collection of stuffed animals), and with new friends. This birthday is a moveable feast: I will celebrate next week with the rest of my family, in LA, and the following week with my oldest friends, in New York. Photos of the park party currently reside in somethingsomething's mother's camera, and photos of the brunch do not exist - all interested photographers were too busy eating. And if anyone out there knows the whereabouts of sister-in-law's checked suitcase, kindly send it to her home address...she managed to visit here for three days with borrowed socks, shorts, and shirts, frequent laundry, and many phone calls to the baggage-tracking department of her airline, resulting in no suitcase.
