(219) Surviving My 60th Birthday

I made it.  I survived!

My low-key celebration was a lot more fun than even I anticipated. I had purposely left the invitation wide open so that anyone I knew could join me for a beer at the Fort Myers Brewing Company. Friends could also invite friends, which made it even more fun, as I met a couple of new people, and I got to see a friend that isn’t on my Facebook page. The evening was very hot with a high dew point, causing all of us to be soaked in a layer of sweat. The original plan to have this last just a couple of hours didn’t hold…we were there well after dark. A great time was had by all. Thanks for all who came out. Thanks for the gifts — earrings and balloons and scratch off lotto cards and candy and a growler full of Tamiami Tan. Gifts were not necessary, but the ones that were given were meaningful and just what I love. Here is a photo gallery from last night. As you will see, this was a party for all ages!

Susan and Rafael got there early to get everything set up. They brought a lot of extra chairs, which came in handy. Here they are enjoying the Mango IPA.
Natalie gave me some very cool earrings. I had to put them right on.
Kira and Jody

Layne wasn’t as happy to see surprise guest Joe as I was.

Good times with great friends
Love love love
My love, who insisted on buying the beer. Thanks, honey.
