Hi David --- thanks for the Easter wishes, and if you'd only known, I'm sure you'd have said Happy Birthday to me too!
My 97 year old mother just drove by the front of our house to hand me a birthday gift out the car window on her way to her house where she's putting on Easter dinner for some 30 members of the family. You'll be glad to know she wasn't driving! Her eyes just aren't good enough for that.
And, I'll have all five grandchildren at the dinner --- life doesn't get better than that!
Sorry to hear your family is all away today, David, although I suspect an hour or two into 30 family rousting about I'll envy you the peace and quiet.
While you're headed to 90 today, we're already at 52 and may hit 60. Speaking of hitting 60, I've "hit" 69, just 11 years short of 80.
Cheers to all at HW,
