39 again!

Not sure how he does it, but the CE sailed through another birthday with his youthful good looks intact, if not his ankle. The foot continues to be problematic – lots of pain and not much sleep, but all cares were cast aside for a day of celebration on Wednesday.

The day began with Victoria and Alexandra so very thoughtfully stopping by to prepare a sumptuous CE-worthy breakfast – Eggs Benedict (one of Autumn’s eggs went into the Hollandaise sauce), potatoes and fruit.

Prepping the birthday breakfast

A celebration fit for a king - or an emperor!

Victoria found a most appropriate balloon - and yes, that's the birthday boy doing his gimp version of the Chicken Dance

That evening, dear friends Dave and Karen took us and Phyllis out for a lovely dinner.

The CE and Dave

It was a truly happy occasion with so much to celebrate, including the very exciting news that Dave and his very special friend, Karen, are ENGAGED! We are so happy for them!

The happy couple!

    The dark side of 39 is not as bad as they say. You get special treatment at Denny’s, for example, by eating dinner before 3:30 pm. That way you can be in bed by six, six-thirty.

    It was a great birthday and I am grateful to everyone who took the time to call or send a card or gift. Thanks to all of you.

    Wow – I don’t know what to use for my screen saver first – the picture where Steven’s wearing a crown, of the one where he’s doing the chicken dance.

    Happy (belated) Birthday CE!!!!!
