50 is fabulous!

Thank you to all of you who came to celebrate my 50th in a wonderful way. We took about 30-35 blankets to the homeless shelter. They even shared some birthday cake with me after 10 of the residents serenaded me with "Happy Birthday". I will never forget what a great day we had. :-)

Happy New Year, everyone!
