Thanks everyone! I celebrated by being part of a choral group Tuscon Meadow Larks which sang Christmas carols to even more elderly folks at Cascade Extended Care facility here in Tucson. I think we enjoyed the singing as much as the folks enjoyed hearing us...
We attended a nice "DO" at our church Sunday night, outstanding food, great entertainment and even a White Elephant swap (you might call it Naughty Santa). T'was the very best Birthday! (I do think I will do the start backwards thing next year - you know, going from 70 to 69.)...and no I'm not 70.
