yesterday I attended the birthday party of my friend's grand-daughter. she is two and I am not sure if I ever saw her light one place too long....that just how two years are. the little girls were precious and the one boy was a cutie....much icing and ice cream abounded and I think I ate six cupcakes by myself. yum.
after the party the adults sat on the front porch with a fan to blow away the mosquitoes and candles to warm the conversation. we debated the merits of Roosevelt, Carter, Bush and many others and when that bored one, we discussed purses shoes and many other things. there was much "do you remember?" and "when I was a kid....." favorite books included many and we all agreed the language in "of mice and men" is probaby a bit strong for a public school reading list.
I drove home in the fog of the rain hangover and fell asleep knowing the company was good and the night was the best in a while.
