Thanks for taking us out to dinner last night. It was good to have the whole family together. The kids looked very nice all dressed up. Jake and Ben were quite handsome and Abi was more adorable than usual.

She gave me a pair of jeans, khaki slacks, and socks. It’s so easy to buy gifts for me. Of course, now I feel worse be being so clueless. There’s a weekend in Vegas in our future; I just don’t now how I’m going to pull it off. I got four months to figure it out.

  1. Regarding the Abbey Road photo above. That album cover started the “Paul is dead” rumor. Interesting to note that Paul is still very much alive.
