Today is Andy’s birthday, and we’re getting ready to celebrate a fun couple days with friends and family. In about an hour we’re heading to a birthday lunch with his family. It’s at Sol, a popular, family friendly Mexican restaurant in the area. Then later in the evening we’re meeting with good friends from college at an Asian restaurant. It’s also at a local place, but we’re driving out to Easton PA to pick up a close friend of mine to take part in the festivities. She wants to join and take part in celebrating, but didn’t have a way of getting there. We’re looking forward in sharing Andy’s birthday with loved ones, and it’s actually a very nice, seasonable afternoon. Here’s hoping for good fortune and little conflict.
