Very tardy to the party here but it’s never too late to wish the CE a Happy Semi-Major Birthday, is it?
(We won’t discuss numbers, but let’s just say there have been a flurry of calls to the Social Security Administration in the past few weeks.)
We celebrated with Dave and Karen, who surprised the birthday boy with an epicurean feast and tickets to see a group we’d never heard of but will now never forget!
After dinner, we went to a sold-out performance for the Portland so-out-they’re-in group Pink Martini. Big band brass with a hipster twist. And the CE’s favorite twist of the evening was the indomitable, inimitable Ms. Storm Large. There is really no describing this tall drink of talent, although her name, which is her own and not a stage name, sums it up pretty well. She is, without a doubt, a force of nature! You’ve got to see her to believe her:
The CE could not be convinced to join the conga line but it was still a great evening and a memorable way to turn a year older. Happy bday, CE!
