Somehow, I turned 71.

Of my four kids, only two live near me in Arizona. Dorothy and Karen, the other two, called me for my birthday, of course. Jenny and John had me come to a restaurant birthday dinner!

It turned out that a lot of people were making reservations that day, so we couldn't go to my first choice (Red Lobster) but the place we wound up at, Brio's, turned out to be superb, and I'd certainly go back!

L2R: Michael Manion, Zach Rizzo, Chris Wudarski, John Cilwa, Willie Young, Adrienne Young, Kyla Young

Row facing us, L2E: Surya Hood, Barbara Lafford, Peter Lafford, Mike Ziegler, Cailey Cilwa, Jenny Cilwa, Jimmy Rizzo, Dominic Rizzo, Gianna Rizzo, Brinkley (a friend of Gianna;s).

The only shot of me anyone took at my party!

So poor little Dominic was sporting a shiner below his left eye. It seems Dominic laid down on his skateboard which was tied to Brinkley's bicycle. Apparently she got going pretty fast, so when he fell off the skateboard he wound up scraping his face on the sidewalk.

And people complain that today's kids are on their cellphones and iPads all the time. Not true! (Although they do tend to use them in restaurants, and who can blame them?)
