This was an excellent day. Not that there has been any lack of those for the last, oh, ten years or so. But this one was one, anyway.

First, I attended a real-life baby shower. Not one of these cozy little afternoon things, were a few friends come and have some tea. No. This was an all-out, all-American, organized, big-time Event! It had an organizer, a very surprised mother-to-be (mainly because she had attended another surprize baby shower yesterday), a special venue for the occasion (a local club house), a mountain of presents, twelve quiches, and twenty women. Wonderful. Just wonderful.

Then, one of them took me bike riding this afternoon. Because, you see, Nature is teasing us these days. She is acting just as if spring was coming. So we had sun, calm, clear skies and temperatures in the fifties. And it's less then six weeks till Christmas!

Finally, I got to spend the rest of the day with two beautiful women. My daughter is looking more like her mother by the day. Which is a good thing.

Thank God for women!

A perfect day.
