Who has a birthday today?

By the way, this is also the anniversary of Grandad's birthday - Dad said last night that he was born something like 125 years ago.

We had a VERY nice pre-birthday dinner at Line Thai. We had stopped at Dillon's in Sun City Grand and were told that it would be at least an hour and we decided to move on. At Line Thai (right near Sid's favorite breakfast place Coco's) we got right in after they set up the table for us. We each ordered a different entree and then ate family style - passing food around. I ordered squid with cilantro, lemongrass, etc - just a very little spicy kick. We also had a couple of shrimp dishes, a couple of beef dishes, a chicken dish and maybe a veggie dish - it all got kind of jumbled. All the food was very good and the restaurant was relatively quiet so that we all could chat and hear. Also the birthday surprise was a dip of coconut ice cream with some chopped peanuts which Cynthia graciously shared - was delicious.

Before dinner we went to Radiance Church for service. The church bulletin didn't really say anything at all about the plan for the church service. It was about twenty minutes of loud Christian rock - with the words beamed on to screens throughout the sanctuary and then about an hour of sermon/lecture. Mother had a nice nap and got the Reader's Digest version of the sermon later. Dad was very impressed with the variety of donuts offered in the snack area of the church. They also have a Seattle's finest cafe which was open and doing some business. (Some free coffee was available which I tried.)

Well, have a project I'm working on, so need to close this.

Happy Birthday
Cynthia King Park!!
