Thank you!

I've been dipping in and out of the list this year (and not saying much)
due to RL.  So catching up today.

I love good food and it sounds like a lovely birthday celebration.  I will
definitely put the breath mask on and go outside - but I'm going to listen
to the safety videos and check the air left in the tank first!

(For my birthday on Earth, I had lunch the previous Saturday with friends.
My husband took me out for dinner on the day to a nearby pub and then we
came home and snuggled with our six month old recently spayed kittens.
Which speaking of spaying kittens, I can highly recommend the suitcal
recovery suits - so much easier than a cone of shame!)
