Happy Birthday to My Partner in Crime

Birthday Breakfast

Like a bunch of our friends with successful, long term marriages, we have been celebrating our very Libra birthdays together, now for 53 years. My dad, after the divorce, took me out to eat at a fancy restaurant and when Rod entered the picture, he got to go, too. The last big one with his second intact family, included our two kids, who both remember the belly dancers, as vividly as I.

Two years ago, for the birthday year that he shares with our great friend from New Zealand, we took a 70th Birthday trip through Colorado and New Mexico, because it was their combined birthday wish to ride both the Durango/Silverton and the the Cumbres & Toltec railroads, in First Class. It was a blast and we are all looking forward to the days when America and Americans are not the Virus Capital, so that we can travel, once again.

Best Friend. Best Dad. Best husband. All around great guy. He has promised to help, when we attempt to do The Zoom thing, on the 16, 17 and 18th, from 10 to 11 am Pacific time, for our West Coast Rhinebeck booth. All of you folk who have been to shows know him so well, so it only seems fitting that we do it together.

Happy Birthday, Rod Souza!

  1. He IS a great guy, second in my list only to my father, who could fix anything (seemingly) and didn’t mind sharing that wisdom with his girls (his only son couldn’t have cared less). I do admire the way you two support each other — and try to forget about the sniping and pouting that happens on load-out night. XD

    Love you both, to pieces!


  2. Yeah, that sniping and pouting is fatigue and hunger driven. There will be no more plastic wrapping the racks. If and when we can travel with them, once again, we are making cloth covers. Have the bolts of fabric but no incentive to make them, right now. In the meantime, we can go to our separate corners for pouting. Haha!
