Sept 9: Happy Birthday to me…!

“happy Birthday; you’re what, 22 today?”~Scotty, bartender at J. Patrick’s Irish bar and grill

All these years and I still got it!

My Birthday Day was a great one, and it’s not one of those landmark 30-39-40-50 years. Just a birthday but not just a birthday.

From my husband, to start the day off right: Trekkies unite in geekness.


Drove from Michigan to Chicago to hang with my Journal Club friends Jane and Cyn.


Embassy Suites manager’s reception.


Jane and I wandered The Magnificent Mile along Michigan Ave. downtown past stores like Burberry, Nordstrom, & anthropologie, and sites like the Chicago Water Tower and the river. Then Jane treated me to my Birthday Frapp, in a La Boulange store, no less. Why be “or” when you can be “and?”


Notice the cup? It’s the little things that make a big day. And the visit’s not over yet…!
