B’day Pics

- On Friday night, Heidi threw me a party for my birthday. A cool group of people attended despite the fact that it was Good Friday as well as Passover. We had a blast with good ol’ wine/cheese/beer & cake. (What a cake!) In the dark light, without using my flash, I took a few photos. My apologies to anyone whose photo appears here. Take a look.

Robbie oversees the main room which will soon be filled with folk.
By that time the timid little cat will be well-hidden under my drawing table.


The cake was delivered just before the first guest arrived.
The cake was done by the same guys who did our wedding cake last Sept.
The delivery guy asked if I had any openings for a storyboard artist.

The first knock at the door.

Mike and Tim Rauch in the rear ground.


John and Emily goofing around.
The red’s in the bad photo not John’s face.


By this point all that was left was to cut the cake.


Adrian Urquidez took this final shot with his phone.
The cake went over well. Hazelnut cake with apricot preserve filling.

    Great party, thanks for having us. Liesje Kraai is the name you’re missing.

    I guess I’d never heard her name in the introductions or I would have recognized it as one of your key animators. Certainly, I would have had a lot more to say in the fleeting moments I got to spend with anyone on Friday. Mea maxima culpa.

    Happy Birthday once again! Late to the party and late to comment, that’s me!

    I fear I am even later, but just as well-meant: Happy Birthday!

    Does your blog have a contact page? I’m having trouble
    locating it but, I’d like to send you an e-mail. I’ve got some suggestions for your blog you might be interested in hearing.
    Either way, great website and I look forward to seeing it develop
    over time.
