We don't need no water...

I could say Happy (belated) Birthday to Barbara. I could make a joke about getting older since I know how much this annoys her. Instead, I will simply say that it is a good thing that Germans do not believe in smoke detectors. Man, look at that forest fire!!

Barbara tried to deny getting older by flying off to Mexico. Her plan somehow overlooked a few subtle details: 1) that she would one day need to return home 2) that nowadays they sell very long burning candles 3) that, excluding Angie, we are a very patient family.

Despite Angie's occasional lack of patience, her experience and knowledge gained while working at a nursing home really helped to add a certain level of sensitivity to Barbara's aging party. I have been known to be rather sensitive to the wrinkly generation myself, so all in all, I think Barb was well looked after. If anything, she was not cold, 'cause Man, look at that forest fire!!
