BIRTHDAY! My friend, Joy, always takes me to lunch on or near my birthday. This has been a tradition for many, many years. Today was the day even though my birthday was last week. For the last couple of years, we have made it a point to stay in our own town and support the local economy. This year it was very important that we do that because of Hurricane Rita. Local businesses just need our business. We went to the Bread Box, which is owned by someone we both know. It is a little boutique type of establishment that has very good food. We had a nice lunch and a nice visit. Friends are just awesome! I am very lucky.
