As we know, I take birthdays very seriously, especially when it is that of the love of my life.
We'll have been married thirty years next month and I have been realizing the happiness that comes from spending so much time with one person. I should say, with that one person who is practically perfect for me in every way.
We will fete him with Chinese food from a favorite restaurant in Richardson's Chinatown. He has asked for Tirimisu which the Central Market makes superbly ... and so I have no need to cook. Just to wrap, wrap, wrap his gifts.
Which I hope he enjoys very much though they are truly a token of the joy he brings to us and to everyone who knows him.
Happy Birthday, dear Tom!
