Had a nice Saturday, at least

Went to Santa Cruz in the afternoon for my cousin Renee's birthday party. She has the most beautiful eyes. My mom says they look exactly like my great-grandfather's. Which is how we are related - her mother and my maternal grandmother shared the same surname.

Renee's late great father, who once played drums with The Bird, was a die-hard Celtics fan, and Renee inherited that, so the party was at an amazing place on Front Street called Club Caution which has a beautiful projector pointing at a huge screen on the wall, and it was tuned to the Boston-Orlando game. She's such a regular there, they even had the Celtics logo on her birthday placard. Unfortunately, Boston lost. Also unfortunately, most of Renee's musical friends flaked, the folks who showed up were mostly people from her kick-bo class and marathon run training group. I don't know how she does that stuff- Renee looks about as much like a marathon runner as I do. I gave her a 5.7 carat midnight blue star sapphire, which turns out to be her favorite gem, so she was very happy and showed it to everyone.

Also to go behind a cut will be a photo or two of Domino and Pumpkin lounging under their new patio canopy. I am jazzed because all I'd meant to do was give them a dry strip of patio where they could watch the world through the gap under the wall, but the canopy has effectively kept all the rain off, as well as all the considerable sequoia tree droppings (those giant redwoods seem to shed seed pods with branches attached all year long).
