BIRTHDAY WISHES ... AT 7TH AND MONTANA!
It was a Celebration -- 7th and Montana style -- at Our Favorite Starbucks this morning as word spread that today is Barista Sammy's 21st Birthday. "You're legal, the Big 21, Congratulations!," I said, as Sammy (pictured above) beamed behind the Espresso Bar. Like any 21-year-old, she was eager to "tie one on" ... that is, if you count the Snappy Bow Tie she wore with her Starbucks Uniform. And Sammy wasn't the only one celebrating. Screenwriter Nat, also a Leo, celebrated his birthday several days ago. The combined festivities were enough to coax Rigolatte, the local crackpot with a song in his heart, out of the bathroom -- where he has been busy belting out Opera Tunes -- and into the limelight for the first time in a week. In fact, the Songbird (pictured below) has even added something new to his repertoire. He walked right up to the Pastry Counter and began giggling at unpredictable intervals in a voice that sounded remarkably like Dracula's sidekick, Renfield ...!
