It was Many Happy Returns at 7th and Montana this week as Neighbor Nat celebrated his birthday. Happy Birthday, Nat! Also, Kathy made the scene, renewed and refreshed after two weeks in Australia. In case anyone doubts that she really was in Australia, she sent me a picture (below) of herself and her friend, Laura, holding a cuddly Koala. Speaking of returns, I'm pleased to say that I'm back up and running with my blog after a five-day absence. In case you were wondering what happened, a new security patch was installed on my computer that made it so secure I couldn't connect to the Internet. To make matters worse, I was busy with back-to-back meetings all week, which meant that I couldn't address the problem until today. Sorry for the brief hiatus. I guess I'll just have to make up for it by finding twice at much weirdness at 7th and Montana this weekend ...!
