At my birthday party at a local gelato & espresso café.
I love opening presents. My parents didn't believe in birthday parties for children (did they not want to clean up?); so I am always playing catch-up.
bink helped by bringing party hats and a sparkly crown for the Birthday Girl.
Above: Cathy knitted me these amazing mittens, using alpaca wool. You can't see here, but there's a little herring skeleton on each thumb.
Above: Star Trek coasters from VL. Cups & glasses will never touch these.
After the party, bink and I went to see Earth vs. Flying Saucers (1956) at the new microcinema (seats 50) that shows old films.
It was a terrible clunker of a movie. And what a delight: I have missed laughing in the black-and-white dark with strangers.
After the movie, I sacked out on bink & Maura's couch, and Joop squeezed himself on too.
