Okay, for the first time in my 40 years, I got a surprise birthday party :). Boy did my husband know how to keep a secret. I thought we were having 2 couples over for dinner, and on some ruse
(sp?) he got me to go over to one of the couples' houses and stay there for about 1/2 an hour. When I came back, there were cars parked near our house, and a big surprise as I walked in the door. Tres exciting. I don't like being in the center of the attention thing, but it sure was fun cherishing that these people either drove a LONG way and took time out to spend it with us this past weekend. That's what makes a nice life .... friends and laughter and all the good memories that come with it. ... That's one for the memory bank.
