We celebrated my 83rd birthday a day early because on the day Cliff and I went to see a local play accompanied by a friendly couple. Then they treated us to dinner at our favorite Chinese restaurant.

The cake, as usual, was from our local Baskin-Robbins. If you’re curious, it was all of our favorite flavors -- chocolate!  That’s right! Chocolate cake and chocolate ice cream. I’d send you some, but (first) I don’t know how to send it by email, and (second) it’s all gone. Yup! We polished it off. All of it. Well, maybe next time.

The play, incidentally, was Avenue Q, quite  an unusual production. It consisted of live actors playing particular parts, plus muppets - head and shoulders - held by live actors, who voiced the dialogue and sang the songs while working the puppets at the same time. Fascinating!
