What a wild day I’ve had – BIRTHDAY madness with greetings from near and far and the back of beyond. Even a beautiful bouquet. Coincidentally my next door neighbor (also named Janet) has her birthday today also. And she is from the East Coast also – almost the adjacent town to Belmont. In the midst of all the phone calls I was trying to do some genealogy work and sort out my 8 Great Great Grandfathers. And an AMBER ALERT kept disrupting the phone calls. That was a nuisance – a stolen car somewhere near Spokane – that’s only 200? miles away. Grr.
