Zyada, Grace and her friend Hootee, Chef Troy and his lovely wife have made my birthday a special event. It wasn’t a gathering that lends itself to much of a blow-by-blow type of summary.
We laughed a lot, told some stories, had fun with a little kid at the next table (who didn’t seem to be scared of a bunch of loud strangers). Zyada had to inject one more male bashing joke, but that’s ok.
I just want to say that this is a great group we have here in the Dallas area. I posted a thread on Wednesday asking for people to join me for dinner and on Saturday, six of us enjoyed a nice dinner together. It feels great to find people so willing to share a special day with me on such short notice.
A few notables I need to mention. [ul][li]If you kiss Zyada right before a picture is being taken, she can give a you a very harsh look. I don’t think it was serious though since she did snuggle up close for the next picture.Grace gives wonderful birthday kissesChef has plenty of stories for any gathering.[/ul][/li]I had a very good time and can’t wait till the next chance we have to get together. I’ll have another birthday if necessary. At my age, an extra one here or there doesn’t make much difference.
Thanks again to all for the birthday wishes.
