Surprise party. We had a surprise party for Ed on his 50th birthday. There were about 40 guests. Just before Ed and his wife pulled up in the driveway, we gathered in his house with the lights out. We stood in the dark, whispering as he walked up the driveway. I hadn't stood in the dark with a group of other people since high school! It was a lot of fun. Turned out Ed knew something was up. His wife had been phoning us as they drove home from a restaurant, keeping us updated on their progress. After we yelled surprise and sang happy birthday, the kids raced around and finally wound up playing a video game. Some of the men settled down on the living room couch to watch the Clippers game (in LA we're all Clippers fans now). Terry gave me detailed description of his family's trip to Costa Rica. Sounded like a great trip. Saturday night in the suburbs. Wouldn't have it any other way.
