It was very good to have many people at the Birthday / Solstice / Birthday. A full entry on that tonight. But the presence of two there that were especially sweet. cindygerb wasn't able to be at last years birthday party and was able to make it to this one. Definitely a wondrous thing. The other is that we were able to have Sally-pupply at home for my birthday. Having her cooped up in the kitchen caused a few problems but it was good that she got through the operation and is doing quite well.
