Barbara Muir © 2017It's our friend David Cohen's birthday, and he probably
wishes that I didn't remember the occasion even with
concussion brain, and didn't sing Happy Birthday to him
over the phone. (I'm no singer!) But he is a wonderful person,
super writer, great photographer, and married to my dear
friend Marcia Labelle (an amazing artist, and sculptor.)
I am not that good at remembering dates of birthdays, but
David's sticks in my mind. So Happy Birthday David.
I love the salad servers in this picture which I inherited
from my mother, and we use them every night to serve
salad. Steven makes a delicious salad, and cuts carrots
like a professional chef. On my night to make supper
(we alternate nights) I serve his leftover salad, and
anything else he cooked that I can possibly reheat.
(Not a cook sorry). I hope David had some salad
with his birthday dinner -- along with cake of course --
maybe not at the same time. Cake deserves ice cream.
So I did a little drawing of a typical salad at our house
-- this one in a glass bowl, and now it's a watercolour.
Have a Happy Birthday Party -- with salad!
