Wednesday, July 16

Thank you.



Thanks to BW for the image. It's been a tough year but today is a wonderful day. Thanks for all your kind words and messages, folks!

And just in time the New York Fraking Times wrote up the town where I'll be for the next week or so (minus reliable internet, be warned.) I'm under strict instructions to, quote:

"let yourself off the hook more than you usually do."

So I'll be doin' that.

Update: Sherry asks, was there cake?


Not shown: three frosting roses of which Mommy got none. :)

    I assume you have finally reached the age of majority in your district and can go out for libations of a felicitous nature?

    Enjoy your day!

  10. Happy Hatchling BG. That article made me sad, as we'd LIKE to move to Tacoma. Imagine, living on or near The Puget Sound . . . and there's picker's on every corner up there in the NW just like in the Carolina's and Virginia's, by gawd!

    Have a great time . . . damn, all that seafood and shellfish at yer fingertips . . . *G*

  12. Happy Birthday!!

    Lucky you! I fell in love with Ballard last year when I was up thata way. On one of my "gotta move... but where?" Saturday getaways, I explored Anacortes and found a house, a job, all the local jam spots. I was so excited to move there! Then I had to get back to work. Sometimes I hate the internet.

    Have a great trip. Eat cake!! :-)

  13. Ack! I thought that your birthday was on the 17th. Happy Birthday, Blue Gal! Remember to think of life as a continuous learning experience, with occasional moments filled with chocolate cake and ice cream. :o)
