|Harpers Ferry, WV, 2014: This photo showed up on FB|
today and is what gave me the idea for this post
|This was at the birthday dinner itself, in Baltimore,|
later that same day apparently: baked alaska!
|2007: "David's 54th. I got him a few presents: a Swiss army knife |
(to replace one now languishing in a 'security hangar' somewhere),
a silk Hawaiian shirt, and a long-sleeve lightweight sweater...
hope he likes 'em!"
|French Poodle dessert|
|2010 (57) This was actually on a walk with my friend Jen in the morning,|
but that evening I surprised David with a Sheryl Crow concert
at the Mountain Winery in Saratoga (South Bay). (No pictures allowed.)
She was great!
|2011 (58): Geocaching with Babar (see him?). |
Sometimes geocaching is the perfect way to spend a birthday.
|All of David's sibs came for his sixtieth! Super special!|
|A high-end bottle of tequila gifted by the Norwegians|
|Did I mention that there were sixty candles? Yup.|
And tonight, after an afternoon trek along the Big Sur bridge-construction bypass trail and through Pfeiffer–Big Sur State Park along the river, we stopped at Bill Lee's Sur Restaurant in the Barnyard. After we'd finished our meals (filet mignon; ahi tuna), the waiter asked if we'd like to see a dessert menu. David said, "Just a peek." I mentioned that it's David's birthday. The waiter said, "Oh, I didn't know that," and disappeared. A few minutes later he reappeared with a scoop of chocolate-covered ice cream, in a gorgeous, dry ice–enhanced presentation:
Very celebratory! Happy birthday, David! And many more!
