Wow! I'm so amazed by all the warmth, care and camaderie of all the people who participate in these Boards. To each and everyone of you, thank you for your good wishes and kind words. I feel so honored. And Larry, thanks for remembering and starting the thread!!
And thanks to Moraldo for letting me know about this thread. I hadn't seen it! What a "gaffe" on my behalf.
One of the things I love more of my birthday being on August 2nd is that I share it with my beloved Myrna Loy, who was born on the same day but in 1905. Am I right about the year? So the "Thirteen Women" clip was justso pertinent Ben, because it was also dear Myrna's posthumous birthday.
I had a grand time on saturday friends. Since I turned 40, I wanted to do something special (for the first time in my life), so with the help of my wife, we organized a cocktail-party and it turned out great. Most of my family attended and some friends too.
Larry (I guess you'll like knowing this), we drank Chilean Carmenère and Chardonnay, among other beverages and ate some delicious things and hors d'ouevre, especially prepared and/or ordered by my wife.
And for the dance party I gathered a collection of some 500 songs from the 1980s and 1990s (Swing Out Sister, Duran Duran, OMD, Crystal Waters, Human League, Mylène Farmer, Rick Astley, Cher, Depeche Mode, Erasure, Yaz et al). We had so much fun!!
Life is Beautiful.
