It's my party

and I don't wanna cry! I'm celebrating my birthday this week. Maybe I'm another year older and deeper in debt, but my friends and spiritual family members are treating me well.

I had birthday dinner at Ken and Michelle's on the actual date, then they, Bob and Linda and Evelyn all took me downtown in our little burg last night for a wine-tasting festival, the proceeds of which go to scholarships for women. I wasn't allowed to pay for my ticket, but I sampled more wines than I can remember, and nibbled catered food from just about all the wine stations set up around the downtown.

Afterward, we went to a downtown drinkery (I was all drunk out by this time, and ordered only water) and heard some really good music.

Now, we're heading up to St. Augustine for dinner and a tour of some of its buildings on the "Ghost Walk." Sounds like fun.

I don't expect to run into any real spooks. I have a ghost story or two to tell, though. Maybe I'll get set them down here before Halloween.

Happy Birthday, Pat! Sounds as though your friends made sure you had a happy one. Ttust me: getting older is better than the alternative.

Happy Birthday. I have one coming up in November and sad to say I have come to dread each birthday (for various reasons) but I need to learn to embrace them.
I went on a ghost walk here where I live the other night and it was great. I hope you have a good time.

Happy birthday, Saint Pat!! I celebrated one this week also. Hope that the seasons go just as you would like them to be and that you are glad again this time next year. Love,

Thank you all for your kind birthday wishes!

Allen, I'm praying you get a great birthday this year. Many blessings and Mazel Tov!

Maddie, there's no one I'd rather have insult me.
