Happy Birthday to You!!This is the way the Cheesecake Factory gave good wishes to Shirley this evening... A single candle sure lit up that second blob of whipped cream!
We started celebrating her birthday about two weeks ago when I got caught twice in the same day trying to secretly buy her birthday presents... so I just gave them to her early so she could enjoy them right away. She always wants to know how far she has just walked... so a GPS watch/heart monitor was a hit. And before I could pay for the set of pan pastels, she walked into the Opus Art Store and caught me at the cashier looking guilty.
But today, which is actually her birthday, she didn't really get to call the shots to make it her day. We had weeks ago made plans to drive to Seattle today so that I could catch a plane to Mexico early on the 25th... and she would get three days to be super-granny to Maizy and Lulu as well as get first views of our kids new digs on Bainbridge Island. I will return on Wednesday afternoon and we will be back together again... and life will go on.
Which brings up another Apple product about to runaway... you gotta check out Mac Air!!! I played with one today in the Apple Store at Bel Square. Pretty awesome.
