A Birthday and the "New Math": 51 = 5 + 1 = 6.

So I had my 51st birthday. Unlike last year's turning of the biological odometer, this didn't seem like a big deal. We had a quiet day, just the family, while the snow fell and the wind howled.

I told Josefina that I was younger than her because she is now seven, but I am five and one. Five plus one equals six, haha!

I think she actually got the joke.

Anyway, I never have time to feel "old" for very long. The kids keep me young at heart....

As does my wife who cooks fantastic birthday meals. The Greek ancestry that no doubt stirs somewhere in my Mediterranean roots was roused by Moussaka and Zucchini pancakes. Thank you, Eileen:
