June 4, 1947

Today is AW's birthday! I don't know why I am excited about it -- perhaps because it isn't MY birthday? I even bought him a gift -- something we haven't done for each other for years -- and a card -- a mushy card! Even though I had a funny one picked out -- something about REAL MEN and maps -- you can see where that is going -- but I opted to be nice. So, nice dinner and a gift -- he will be happy! Celebration with children to follow later -- tonight it is just us. So, Happy Birthday, AW!
