Happy 100th Birthday Dr. Julian Lewin

Wow!      This evening I attended a 100th birthday party for my friend Joan’s father.

I brought my camera and had the privilege of photographing him as he blew out the 100 numerals on his cake.

He really liked the books of unexpected animal relationships.

The cake looked pretty and was enjoyed by all.

General Grant’s 190th Birthday Party

We have interesting friends.   Here’s a creative celebration Steve and I went to on Saturday night.  What a fun event.  Here are a few of the details. Hardtack crackers and dried black-eyed peas.  The sheet music for Tenting Tonight on the piano. Photographs and books bearing the General’s likeness.  A willingness to celebrate and have fun.  A Prantl’s cake with five candles for his rank. I made Rice Pudding after reading that it was a favorite on the Presidents’ Food Timeline.  Thanks Tim and Bernadette for being such welcoming hosts. We had a wonderful time!

The Color of Bowling Balls (2 images)

Picked Michael up from a birthday party at the  Saw Mill Lanes in Columbus.  The balls were the color of Granny Smiths or Neon Orange.

Beco (long e) was one today.  A first birthday party was held at the Columbus Zoo.  We got there late in the afternoon.  Saw the carved ice sculpture but not the creation of it.   A piece of the trunk had broken off. He’s an Asian elephant.

His name and a number 1 still visible! When we got there no one paid much attention to the ice sculpture. The line into the Elephant House was loooong!
