I doubted I could top last year’s home decor/office flora extravaganza so I went an entirely different and decidedly (and maybe even less romantic) electronic route in the form of a new four-extension phone system to replace her tired solitary cordless (and make it less of a trek to chase away telemarketers), and a set of some tiny lights to better illuminate my love’s computer keyboard and any other dark ‘n dim nooks and crannies which are legion throughout this wonderful house.

Plus we got tickets to A Noise Within’s production of “Man of La Mancha” Sunday, and a to-be-determined dinner date somewhere in Little Ethiopia.

Happy Birthday, Baby!!! I Love You!!!
