Action

Discover the Story...

Then set the Stage...

Switch on the light.

Turn the first page.

Then shout ACTION!
Happy Birthday Sam!

A birthday party of grandest proportions... A black table scattered with confetti, autumn leaves, and photos that celebrated Samuel's 24 years, laid with Honey Glazed Chicken, Rosemary Parmesan Potatoes, Lemon Basil Carrots, freshly baked wheat rolls, green beans, and a fruit salad wrapped in whipped cream.

Then, when the dishes were cleared.... three suitcases were imparted to three groups of people, and the objects therein were turned into three skits, mysterious, dramatic, and rolicking with good, wholesome, fun.

Thereafter followed gifts, packages wrapped gaily in plaid paper and film related trivia, the gifts hidden inside following the general theme of antiquities... Things like a pewter mug with a glass bottom, a pipe case, pipe tobacco, an antique black umbrella, an antique film camera, coffee, a personalized travel mug, and a gift card to Starbucks.

The evening ended...

Like many such evenings do...

with the men on the porch with their pipes...

While we women remained within...
Sharing our hearts, as women do.
