The gang threw me a great birthday party last night. David made a tasty seafood lasagna with a creamy tomato sauce. Dario and Linda made a vegetable casserole with squash tomatoes, garlic and onions. Ananda made a great salad — my first in a month! Someone went to La Cueva and bought a pitcher of margaritas. The IPOD was hooked to a speaker and we had great music — Reggae, Mexican, Modis Yahoo and more. We danced and drank margaritas, wine, rum, Johnnie Walker and Coke.
I stuck to the margaritas and was moderate. Del Mar, the security guard joined us along with somebody’s friends who showed up. It was great fun — much more fun than my boring Thanksgiving with the burnt-out gringos. I was almost three times older than anyone there. Linda made my day by speculating that I was 37 — she’s only 23.
We ate outside by candlelight and it was a lovely, breezy night, fairly bugfree.
