Bruce celebrated his 70th birthday on July 2. That was a family occasion so we thought it would be fun to keep the festivities going with a dinner party for some former colleagues this weekend. There will be 14 in attendance, which is a lot for me. Fortunately, Bruce is going to bake his own cake, but I am signed up for everything else.
Had I been working I would have had to take time off to get ready. But no, I'm retired so I have oodles of opportunity to make a couple of fancy casseroles, some salads and one other dessert. And clean the house. And spiff up the garden.
It appears that my capacity to over-estimate my ability remains unaffected by retirement. I wonder if I can talk the birthday boy into doing some vacuuming?
