Oh! What a nice surprise: a birthday cake at the Talking Stick Restaurant for ME!
I liked celebrating my birthday so much, than when I returned to Baltimore, and boat jobs beckoned, I looked up the train times to DC and spent a day as a tourist there (with tours of Congress, the library of congress, and the spy museum) and also treated myself to lunch and dinner out in the big city! When Kyle asks if I did any chores that day, I can reply, no ‘it is my birthday!’.
The library of congress and the congress building itself - two amazing tours
Kyle promises me he’s organized something for my (rescheduled) birthday when he returns. He won’t even give me a hint as to what it might be, nor how I should dress, nor if it includes being fed. I’m always so amazed that he can keep a secret so well.
