Friends at 40


I had a really nice time this past weekend in Boston. Or should I say, hanging out with my friend Ruthbea and her husband Neil at their place and celebrating Ruthbea’s 40th birthday. It was nice to get caught up and meet and drink and eat (and eat) at the party with her friends. I also had a nice time in the car on the way there and back with the NYFORs, they are really a lot of fun. I have known Ruthbea since 1999 in San Francisco, and it was interesting how much water has passed under the bridge since then. Since we don’t see each other all that often, we spent a fair amount of time collecting the pieces of history and sharing details of a few missed experiences. I also got to know Neil a little bit better, and see what a really sweet guy he is and how great they are together. All in all, a great weekend. And now that I am back I have a mountain of work to attend to…
