We came back from REI, and I said, "huh. I guess I left the door unlocked," and from inside I heard "surprise!" My wonderful wife had carefully taken me to REI for awhile to give time to the people who arrived for my surprise birthday party. Apparently she was afraid everybody had flaked or arrived late because they were all clever enough not to park right outside... *grin*
We had a lovely gaming afternoon/evening with much good conversation and people I don't see enough of. While not everybody could make it, I'm deeply grateful to those who could. And my amazing rightkindofme continues to rock my world. Life is good.
