Almost midnight once again and a quiet day. Nothing new about Ray yet - maybe tomorrow.
Dawn and I took all the kids to the dollar store today. Party time. They each had $2.00 to blow and now that they've all learned what is junk and what is worth the buck, they do quite well with their choices. Elcie found two books, Rochelle found a cool red hat and even cooler sunglasses (that's Rochelle all over) and Rebecca found something (can't remember what now) and saved her other dollar.
Dawn invited me to dinner (just me) tomorrow night unles Ray gets out and then both of us if he's well enough. It won't be completely kidless; her little girl is six but it will be a break. Other than that, a very quiet birthday probably.
Thanks to everyone for the comments and the birthday wishes. I've cooled down a little since I wrote the post last night but I'm still not happy.
Everyone, it seems, has been writing about the anniversary of the 1906 San Francisco earthquake and fire. Very few left now to commemorate the occasion. Used to be an annual gathering at a landmark called Lotta's Fountain on Market Street. When I lived there it drew a sizable group but now very few are left. The local news interviewed a 108 year old woman, still looking and sounding good who remembered. Wow.
I was in the city for the 1989 Loma Prieta quake. (That's the one that stopped the World Series and took out a small section of the Bay Bridge). Scary but we were all okay with no real damage. Others weren't so lucky.
I'm going to try once again for a reasonably early night. A little reading, some music, and sleep.
Welcome kj and thanks for the comment. I'll try to remember the link tomorrow.
Good night - take care.
