, 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.
