  • Today is my mother's birthday . . . happy birthday, Mom! 

    This evening there was a party for her, at which my sister, Jeanne's, idea for a gift from the four siblings was shown to have been a stellar one:

    Is it?  Could it be?  She didn't ask for one, but oh, how she wanted one . . . !

    It was.  A fancy, ultraslim monitor. 

    Amazing how fast the boys got it hooked up!

    Jonathan's birthday was celebrated tonight, as well . . . here he is opening his cards.

    My sister-in-law, Mary, managed to accomplish what I hadn't been able to do . . . get Dmitry to play backgammon, one of my favorite games.

    It was a lovely party!
