Happy birthday to the best bobcat I know!  I hope that your day has been absolutely wonderful, and that the year ahead is full of nothing but good things!  *hugs*

(I meant to do this earlier, but today has been full of getting-ready-for-tomorrow stuff.  But your day isn’t quite over yet, and I wanted you to know I didn’t forget about you!)

Ooh.. no more.. stuffed. *urp*

This birthday was actually pretty rockin’.
Spent a very pleasant afternoon, including a lovely drive to the nearby town of Winters. Russell Boulevard is gorgeous this time of year, and it’s a speed my car can handle. Nothing like a relaxing drive through the countryside to lift the spirits.
Had dinner with Dad and Patti (stepmother) at the Buckhorn. It’s a very high-class steakhouse. I’ve never eaten there before, and I have to say I was very impressed. During the course of dinner, father presented me with a small package. It is worth noting that he has a method of being able to do something very casually, yet in such a way that it is clear it means a great deal more. Sort of the opposite of plausible deniablility. Those who know him would know that him placing something on the table without comment, with all the pomp of emptying a bit of pocket lint or a rusty screwdriver, means that it is something of great importance. Opening it carefully, I had to fight back some tears.

It was the Hamilton.

Our family does not have much in the way of treasured heirlooms and priceless antiques, but this watch belonged to my great-grandfather. It is not a valuable thing, but having it entrusted to me… Wow.
In any case, entirely too much food was eaten - I shall not have to eat for a week, I think - and pleasant company of family had.

On the way to gaming night, Ran into two of my friends just as they were leaving, and was additionally gifted! A nice card with a cat in a sweater, a Whole Foods gift card, and a lovely pocket edition of the Hobbit!

Oh, if you’re curious, this is what it looks like:

Mine’s a 990 - gold-tone brass, and a more plain, but the inside of it is absolutely fascinatingly detailed.

Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you’re a mile away and you have their shoes.

When life hands you lemons make apple juice. Then laugh while life tries to figure out how you did it.

Yay Kitty!

Smerk the cutest dragon
Lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist
In Western Australi

Little Accipiter loved that girl enough
He told her jokes and crazy facts
And other forum stuff

Smerk the cutest dragon:
Traveled cross the sea,
To hunt her prey in foriegn lands,
And snuggle with Acci!

Smerk the cutest dragon
Is getting married now they say
Though little Accipiter
Has yet to name the day.
