Double Nickels

I had a lovely 55th birthday today; I lucked out in that this year it fell on a weekend, so I got to do exactly what I wanted to. Some of which was, admittedly, seasonal errands. I bought most of the stuff I wanted to get, had myself some conveyor-belt sushi, and Robin and I had a wonderful drive, albeit a bit spooky in the morning with all the fog. Oh, and he took this photo of me with Amy:

This is the first year I haven't had Datsa in my arms on my birthday, and I still ache to hold him. Amy tolerates me, but doesn't really like being picked up. Aside from that little twinge, it's been a terrific day! Thanks to all my Facebook friends and relatives for your lovely wishes!
