Many thanks to everyone who reached out to me for my birthday. Because mine is the 17th and Geri's was the 14th, we always celebrated them together. Needless to say, with her gone this year I didn't feel much like celebrating. Indeed I couldn't wait for the days to be past. I was invited to do lots of cool things on my birthday but decided instead to stay in and get as much work as I could done, though I did go catch a sunset on Lake Erie before bed. But through it all I saw your messages, comments and other kindnesses and your love helped get me through the day okay.
I am most grateful.
