Thank you so much everyone! You about made me cry!
You're not late Alix! I still have about 7 hours of birthday left!
James made me an adorable card, which I love. He gave me a really nice tripod for my camera. A few weeks ago he gave me an early birthday gift as well--a digital recorder so that if an idea for my book (or anything else) comes up, I can record it right away. It plugs into the computer so I can upload it.
I have been wanting to go to Ryan's for awhile (the best buffet restaurant around here--I love it and could make a dessert of their rolls!), so we are going there for dinner in a bit.
Thanks again! Yikes, I'm on the downhill side of 50 now! (51 today). Maybe I should grow up soon. hmmmmmmm Nah!
