Patrice and the gnome

It was time for the gnome to continue his journey.

I've been wanting to redecorate my living room, but the gnome's been perched on the bookshelf behind the couch, watching my every move. Also, he's very heavy.

So now he can live with Patrice and Tim, and she can pass him along at the next milestone birthday — which we think might be a couple of years away unless we add new people to the group.

On Monday, we had a mellow celebration with nachos, potato skins, cupcakes, cosmos, and gumballs — all good birthday treats. There were cards and gifts and a few off-color jokes, which we explained to Shappy.

And though we kept it low key per the birthday girl's request, apparently a lot of people at tennis said "Happy FIFTIETH birthday!" Not so low key.

Good thing Patrice has a good sense of humor. Happy birthday, Partner!
