Karen Wyle, congratulations on your 64th birthday! (hums "When I'm 64" for
backdrop). You are going to Kline Station today, as a guest of the quaddies.
Of course you are given standard suit drill, a quick stop in a null-grav
area to find out if you need any medication, and other standard station
precautions. You love the float chairs, and enjoy running through 3-D
obstacle course (which is considered standard orientation for most, but
which is fun for a lot of people). You are given a tour of both the gravity
and nongravity areas, wined and dined and feted, and are a guest at the
Minchenko Theater for a performance of their comedy ballet troupe. You are
allowed to go backstage - you've never seen a four-armed food fight before -
but they are surprisingly careful not to get any sauce in the air vents, and
you only get hit with one meatball, which you don't return in case that's a
signal that you plan to join in. Or maybe you do, the champagne flowed
pretty freely at dinner. 

Happy Birthday!!!
