Dave was born the day after Christmas. The most repeated birthday phrase of his childhood was, "This is for Christmas and your birthday!"
Dave doesn't really like birthday parties much. I planned a surprise party for his 40th birthday - he was not pleased - he was relaxing in grungy, unshoweredness and here come all his friends. His request, No more surprise parties please.
So yesterday it was Dave's choice - whatever he wanted to do, we did. So we got in the shiny silver mustang and drove to the coast. His plan - drive till there's a half tank of gas and then drive back.
It was a beautiful day on the Mendocino coast. We went to Bodega Bay and on up to Fort Ross. This is a very cool place with a Russian Fort - we even saw a Russian Orthodox priest!
How I love this guy. Life just keeps getting better.
