Thanks everyone for all the positive energy!

Today is also our 28th wedding anniversary, so we have a really nice party planned this evening to celebrate the combined events. Some of our friends from high school have a band that has been playing around forever (the drummer, guitar player and me on trumpet played together in a big band/jazz band in high school; got to play the Hollywood Bowl battle of the bands 2 yrs back in the late '60s), so they are going to provide the dance tunes (classic rock/soul).

On a bittersweet note, related to haha's comments, there were 3 sudden deaths this week in our circle of good friends. Kind of a sobering reminder of how life really works.

Anyways, not dwelling on tomorrow today.
