Rita, Terry, & Jean — Chris J. Zähller Birthday Celebration

3 Score Times around the Sun

This week­end, I cel­e­brated my six­ti­eth birth­day sur­rounded by friends and fam­ily. If you had told me I would be doing so weeks ear­lier, I wouldn’t have believed you. But thanks to an accel­er­at­ing COVID-19 vac­ci­na­tion roll­out, every­one had had at least one of the two-dose vac­cines, with most of us hav­ing received both.

My won­der­ful sis­ter Kim V. Zähller and her hus­band Nate Borofsky dec­o­rated their back­yard and pre­pared all of the refresh­ments, includ­ing a choco­late-wal­nut cake and a boozy Planter’s Punch.

I took most of the pic­tures shown here, except for the group photo, made by my dear friend Joe Crumley. I hope you enjoy them.
