HAPPY 81ST BIRTHDAY MOM!

Last night we celebrated Mom's 81st birthday by going to Go Fish Restaurant. Here she is with Michael, holding up one of her presents, Virgil Mayor Apostol's Way of the Ancient Healer:



Here's a review of Virgil's wonderful book by Leny over HERE!

Thanks Gura!
And Leny and others who've backchanneled best wishes to Mom.

While we were at a restaurant, there was a senior citizen couple at the next table enjoying our festivities as Mom opened her presents. When they stood up to leave, they paused by our table to also express Happy Birthday. They said they were both in their mid-80s or so. Mom replied that she just turned 81. The guy replied, "Oh my. YOu don't look a day over 72!"

I marvel now at the specificity. What does "72" look like, versus, say, "73" or "71"?

heh,
