Birthday Boy

Ed's birthday celebration started before breakfast on Sunday. Well, now that I think of it, it actually started on Tuesday night when he carried my big present in from the car, our first flat screen TV. It replaced our kitchen TV that was at least 28 years old and maybe more. We can't remember. So today he received my card, 32 packages of gourmet popcorn (he likes it!), and a massaging shower head. Dottie, Ed's high school girlfriend, called from Memphis, Tennessee, to wish him a happy birthday. This wonderful woman has not missed a birthday in 60 years! And his brother and nephew also called with birthday greetings. Our friend Pat made him an ice cream pie that we three enjoyed after having dinner out at our favorite Lebanese restaurant. The day ended as it so often does, with Ed playing the piano while I sang. It was the 42nd of Ed's birthdays we've celebrated together. May we have many many more...

Happy birthday, Ed! Looks like you've got everything you need there to get you through the year. And it looks like we share the same birthday.
