To fit in school events, we celebrated my birthday over a few days. It was a very simple set of events, which I liked.
For lunch, Mrs. T. and I went out for some noodles, a Chinese tradition. Long noodles are meant to symbolize a long life.
The next day, she made me a special dinner, one of our children baked a cake, and everyone gave me homemade birthday cards.
Some friends reached out. Family members called. Our son called from college, and we had a great chat. He also sent a very thoughtful note, expressing his gratitude and love. This was one of those very satisfying parenting moments. He is happy and is thriving.
I also had a chance to meet some new friends.
I’m all for fancy events. But, given the choice, just being with family and fly fishing is a perfect way to celebrate.

Happy birthday Jo! Where do you go for those long hand stretched noodles around here?
We went to Home Style in Watertown. You also can check out Gene’s Flatbread, either in Boston or Woburn. Thanks for the kind words!
