and starting another year

which makes this my 63rd birthday in sunshine. I was going to say that I was starting my 63rd year, but realized it would be my 64th since the birthday celebrates the completion of a year, rather than the start.

Now that I have you totally confused let it just be that I am in Maui with sunshine, sand and surf. Specifically we had an overnight here anchored off Lahaina.  Symbolic of the town is the Banyan Tree



It was a lovely day for a walk around, a look at some of the historical sites

and a laugh

which is not a submarine

I don’t feel any older today than yesterday but that should not surprise me or anyone else. What I do know is that I am skipping the main dining rooms tonight in favor of the buffet to avoid stupidity and embarrassment on the part of the staff not being one for public displays of cakes and birthday songs.

My best to all of you!

    Mazel Tov on the anniversary of your umbilical cord having been severed. Counting years of age is a morbid practice. Glad you spent it having fun.

    Oh bother, timed it wrong I think – was trying to do the date-line thing right…yesterday was the second here so today has to be the second there. It was Helen’s birthday yesterday, which means it is your birthday today … HAPPY BIRTHDAY (but you still have to wait until November!)

    I got up yesterday morning and one of the first things I said to Ken was “today is Holly’s birthday. She’s 63.” Somehow though, despite my good intentions, I never got an email off to you to wish you a happy birthday. Sounds like you spent the day in an idyllic place…hope it is an indication that the coming year will be wonderful too.

    Love to you and your crew,

    Sounds like a good plan to me! Glad it’s a good day and may this year be filled with many more.
