Yesterday was Tom's 76th birthday and it was a good one. We ate lunch out and I quizzed him about Hugenberg, Nazi industrialist who owned a controlling part of UFA (the film company). Tom has a box of Hugenberg's letters and other research that he never wrote on. It sits under our garage. I've decided to use some of it for a project I've begun.
Tom enjoys talking about his research and I am an eager listener. Happy Birthday, Tom. I'm listening.
We shopped for a new wallet, sold our piano, and I took a cake to art class where everyone was glad it was Tom's birthday. He received well wishes on FB and gmails from sons. Friday night we will celebrate with them and their spouses with dinner and a concert.
Good birthday? I asked.
He sat back in his seat. "This has been the best October of my life."
