Dept. of Birthdays

A Few Belated Birthday Wishes

Yesterday, the lovely heatherbelles celebrated a birthday, and I hope she had a great day. She not only loves history, she takes care of it in her superhero identity as a social history curator - and how awesome is that? She is smart, cheerful, a lover of family and of Doctor Who, the shared fandom of which helped introduce me to her many years ago. Should I ever have the chance to visit the UK, she will be one of the first people I look up. Happy Birthday!

[personal profile] supergee 's birthday was also yesterday. Of all the many people I've met online, he is one of the most perceptive, witty, well-read and memorable. He is an old-school science fiction fan, with an omnivorous and seemingly indestructible curiosity about the world around him. Would that more people were like him, and shared his appreciation of both heart and intellect. Happy Birthday - may the coming year be a good one for you, and for those you love.

Augh! The estimable 
[personal profile] strannik01  also had a birthday that I managed to blank on, back on Sept. 28. Like me, he is a newspaper reporter. He reports in the city, and has a great understanding of the neighborhoods that are his regular beat. He's a fine storyteller; I am always happy to read the tales he writes about his family and his life. I've been lucky enough to have a coffee or two with him, and hope to have more, soon. I hope your day was excellent, and that 2018-2019 is very good to you!

Thank you! And (almost as belated) thank you for the kind words. I was especially touched by the "fine storyteller" part. It's something I wonder about sometimes, so it was really nice to read.
