During the week we received an invitation in the mail to join in the fun of a murder mystery party.
OH...my...the intrigue and planning and the anticipation was fantastic.
On Friday night we travelled a
knocked on the door and the party began.
Hosted by my brother and sister in law Gerry and Heidi,
we arrived to their flat in
It was good that these friends know how to pretend and be good sports..
because it kept the evening full of suspense.
If you have never participated in a murder mystery party I whole heartedly endorse the fun.
The game is played out so that everyone including the host and hostess are kept in the dark as to the true villain until the entire play is read out and the detective work is complete.
I put my playdough making skills to good use during the week.
As a neurosurgeon I just couldn't put my work aside.
Even grown ups need to pretend now and then and since most of us will never be part of an academy awards in real life...
we can at least enjoy acting out a few plays.
It wasn't all about the mystery though...
Heidi had put together the most delicious meal and we enjoyed the courses in between acts.
On Saturday morning the family came to brunch.
I was surrounded by flowers and clearly had the seat of honor and made to feel very special since everyone under 5 feet tall begged to sit beside me.
The coming years like the last 54 will fly by.
One of these years they will rather sit beside each other...
so I just soak in my popularity by the younger set now.
After the candle blowing out practice was exhausted...
we all enjoyed cake.
Turning 54 is a good thing!
Thank you to all you dear ones for loving me as you do.
I am abundantly blessed!!
all for now...
