My husband heralded my birthday with his Today my Birfday wish, a nonsensical phrase we have used for over thirty years. I had few expectations of celebration and oh, what a surprise-filled day it was. We went on a ride along the Deerfield River so I could photograph some of the ravages of the flood. Further north, we stopped at Gould's Sugarhouse where I proved I can still pack away pancakes. Onward we drove to our destination, the Bridge of Flowers and the Glacier Potholes in Shelbourne Falls. With a little luck, I will download some of the better pics and we can oooh and aaaah together. At home, I had numerous phone messages from friends who remembered it was my birthday. My delight was amplified when a couple of my closest friends came over bringing me gifts, good cheer, and, of course, FOOD. Later, on the computer, I discovered how Facebook can bring us together. I admit to feeling really amazed that people would take time out of their days to write, Happy Birthday, Dawn.
