Having already made plans to spend my birthday on the Cape this year, Ash surprised a few days early – at work.  Balloons & banners, stayed late the night before to decorate my office – so much effort.  WOW, very much appreciated.  Thanks Ash 🙂

Cards, birthday greetings & celebration dinners continued all month.

May my next 50 be as full of adventure & love of life!


birthday text from Mom:


“To laugh often and much.
To win the respect of smart people,
And the affection of children,
To earn the approval of honest critics,
And face the betrayal of false friends,
To appreciate beauty,
To find the best in others,
To leave the world a bit better,
Whether by a healthy child,
A garden patch,
Or a redeemed social condition,
To know one life has breathed easier,
Because you have lived,
This is to have succeeded.”



ridiculous, but true
