Another 40th

Today is Jeff's fortieth birthday. It is hard to get a good photo of Jeff—he's always running around monitoring children, pouring drinks, rounding up dirty dishes. One of these days I will get him to sit still and I'll take a photo that does him justice.

I took this one earlier today at his house. We celebrated in grand style: his parents and brother were there, as were Ernie and I and Lucy and Kate and Ron and their family. We remembered the surprise birthday Liz gave Jeff for his 30th when they lived in Livonia. Scary though that in another 10 years, he'll be fifty!

Back then neither Liz nor Kate had children: now there are eight of them and I couldn't resist taking this photo. There was a time we wondered if they would ever talk to each other. Now they are playing board games.

Happy 40th Jeff.
