October 3 was my 61st birthday - how the heck did this happen so soon!?! And why are the days and weeks and months flying by faster and faster the older I get?? Well, anyway - I had a very nice quiet birthday alone. I received loving phone calls, emails, ecards, cards and messages from my wonderful family and friends. I read and relaxed and I spent some time on the beach and took a few photos - the weather is gorgeous and I LOVE this time of the year!
