CONGRATULATIONS AND CELEBRATIONS


Today we celebrated my brother in law’s 60th birthday with a family party. Of course such a celebration should never really be about attaining a certain age, but instead about what one has achieved in the preceding years. Certainly my nephews and nieces came up with a string of interesting facts and statistics on that one, before we performed the birthday toast.

It reminded me of an occasion when, once upon a time, I was eating in a local bistro, and totally co-incidentally, or maybe as a result of divine intervention, a client of some 15 years before was also there with a group of friends. I was invited to join their table to toast the anniversary of her divorce or rather, as it was explained to me, 15 years in sole charge of both the TV remote control and toilet seat!

I enjoy the humor in your blog. Especially related to the sole control of the TV remote and the toilet seat! HAHA

Reminded me of divorce antics involving me and various girlfriends while in the throes of divorce. Some of which I'm in the process of writing about in my blog.(www.dcandmeblog.com)
