Yesterday Hedi (in red, behind) hosted a very nice birthday party for Lily, in the middle in green. We all live in the same apartment complex and have grown quite fond of our sweet Guatemalan transplant. Lily doesn't look her age, and since she is far younger than I am, she has allowed me to "adopt" her as her American mother. Hedi says since I've usurped the mother label, she'll act as the aunt.
Gene, Lily, John
This morning, Lily and I joined the ladies for a nice five-mile walk, and then Gene treated all four of us regular Avellino customers to breakfast at Greene's Corner. I had a wonderful kimchee breakfast bowl, super healthy and delightful. I sure like it when I get to enjoy someone else's birthday as much as I would my own. In fact, maybe even more, since I didn't have to endure becoming another year older!
