Happy Birthday, Kyle!

Birthdays are wonderful, aren’t they?  An excuse to be a little bit decadent—sleep late, eat and drink rather freely with no calorie counting, be nice to yourself, and just generally relax and have fun.  Today was such a day for Kyle.  I gave Kyle his little gift I got him—an awesome fez for him to wear at Dickens as we play parlour games in the hotel! We went to VOTE—early voting was a breeze—and he was generous enough to fit in a trip to the grocery store in preparation for the weekend, but other than that, it was a pretty relaxed day.  I managed to be ready to leave for TRF by about two-thirty, and by three o’clock, we’d dropped off the pups and were on the way. 

We got down there in plenty of time to pick up our product, off-load everything at the booth, and even unpack.  Then, we headed back out, and met friends at Rancho Grande for Tex Mex and margaritas.  Kelly, George and Delaenya, and Donny and Mary all shared Kyle’s birthday dinner time with us.  Mary presented Kyle with one of his Guinness cupcakes and made the event complete!  We were back at the booth watching a movie at a reasonable time, and I hope it was a good day for him.   I suspect the “birthday” theme will carry throughout the weekend, too!
