Enjoyed a lovely dinner with friends celebrating their birthdays. It is so remarkable to me that even if you haven't seen your good friends in weeks or even months, when you do finally get together, it as though you were together the day before. A relatively new comer to this group - I think I first met them around 1989 - they go back even farther; it is twenty-some years later and we gather and have fun just like we did back then. Dinner was elegant and delicious (blackened scallops!), the table was pretty and Scoli, the dog, captured my heart.
