Many excuses are available to explain my lack of postings to this web site. Truthfully, I have just been lazy.
But today is my 60th birthday and I’m going to try to become a better person. (Finally) More postings are in order and that will help me keep in touch with all my friends.
My birthday celebrations began on the Wednesday night before Thanksgiving. I arrived home after a long day at work and my family had prepared a surprise. Hawaiian shirts were given to everyone and a lovely rum punch was served.
We then went to Mango Mikes, a beach themed restaurant in Alexandria, VA.
This restaurant is unbelievable. There are palm trees and fish tanks and lots of tropical decorations. And, great cocktails:
The food was wonderful, but who could really taste anything after all the cocktails?
We had a great time together and I could almost forget my birthday request: to spend time on a beach. There wasn’t any sand but my family made the dreaded birthday a fun event.
