I had an unusual birthday on Saturday. First off, I received over 700 birthday greetings from my Facebook friends. Yikes! As someone fairly new to Facebook, this was a huge surprise! Thanks, everyone!
My wife had to run down to San Diego to help tend to our grandson Jesse. Feeling guilty for abandoning me on my special day, she promised me that the rest of September would be celebrated as my birthday!
I spent most of my birthday working (pretty typical for me).
My friend Samantha Holmes has been staying with us this past week as she and Roger Lay edit her film “Lucky Day” (my acting debut). I drew a logo for Sam’s new company, Leaping Lizards Entertainment. I also completed the rough to a new Firesign Theatre book cover.
Sam and I went to the local Farmer’s Market Saturday morning. I had a beef tamal and a pork tamal for breakfast there and bought two more beef tamales for my breakfast this morning. Yum! I also picked up some great peaches and nectarines at the Farmer’s Market.
Saturday evening I helped to celebrate the engagement of the eldest son of some dear friends of ours.
I came home about 10PM and looked for some monster movies to watch. Sam joined me later that evening after her editing chores and Film Biz Meet ‘n’ Greet opportunities were completed. We watched something together but I don’t specifically recall what that was (maybe a couple of episodes of “The Comeback”) .
All in all, a pretty low key day for a very happy and lucky guy (the little fella below, my first grandson, is one reason I’m feeling so lucky).
