Space Cadet

Slightly Rough Start to My 57th...

My birthday started out with me spilling my coffee into my laptop's keyboard. I instantly put a paper towel on it, flipped it over and removed the battery. The Apple Store genus took it apart and said there was no evidence of coffee and that it will probably be OK if I let it dry for a few days.

Then my nice son bought me a mocha latte at Starbucks, which brightened my day considerably. After that we found a store with the most amazing kaleidoscopes. I really love kaleidoscopes and these were particularly fantastic, so I had a wonderful time. Now we are home relaxing in the insane heat. Happy birthday to me!

I should also give some credit to my sister, who cheered me up after I woke her up at some ungodly hour crying about coffee in my keyboard. My sister is the greatest!
