Thanks, everyone, for the birthday greetings. I had a lovely day yesterday. Didn't do anything particularly special...just spent the day doing fun things in the studio with Sally and Bella as my companions.

Gonna party some today because Glenn's taking me to our favorite fish place for a mess o'catfish. This restaurant has been in existence for over 60 years and produces the best fried fish we've ever had...anywhere. Sometimes they have fried crappie, but that's rare.

We'll have the "catfish plate," which includes a bowl of white beans, a dish of slaw, several perfectly-done hush puppies, potatoes of our choice (I'll have baked. Glenn'll have fried.), a hefty onion slice, some big dill pickle spears, some homemade cornbread, and, because this is the south, sweet tea to drink.

If we have room, we might have (probably share) a piece of one of their many homemade pies for dessert. But, that is a big IF.

It's all sooooo good and we'll probably need a crane to get us out of the place and back into our truck. It will be worth every bite, though, and I'm looking forward to it.

How'd it go in Wayne's World, I think, "Party on, dude!"

Thank you, beth and Uncle Bob. It's been a lovely and relaxing birthday. Did some mild celebrating "on" the actual day, then ate out at our favorite fish restaurant the next day. I'm still enjoying our fried catfish. Soooooo good.

Been taking things slowly and enjoying "smelling the roses" as the saying goes. Lots of time in my studio with my girls, Sally and Bella. For those of you who don't know, my "girls" are our two kitties and they're sweet companions.

I'm just happy to be alive. As a dear friend of ours says, "I'm still kickin', but not as high."
