And a Happy Birthday!

It’s June again, and that means birthdays at the BUMD house! There are more than I can count now; I can’t remember them all. There have been amazing things this month, anniversaries, graduations, and birthdays galore! Number One Son, who turns an unlikely 17 today – I think he’s as surprised as the rest of us – is hitting his stride. This was a quiet evening with a quiet cake; he cheerfully let us put 17 candles and one candle to grow by on the cake, and just as cheerfully blew them all out as we started singing.

Happy Birthday to Me!

Some readers may recall that often my sending a short update concluding with “long letter follows” tends to mean that yes, a longer letter might follow, but generally my correspondent was left to write it themselves and then send it to me.
