Happy Birthday, mom! Mom and my dadís maternal grandmother shared the same birthday. There were many such birthday confluences when I was growing up. There havenít been any that I can think in my adult life, except for that whole Irishman born on December 15th thing that haunted me for a while in my twenties; and the less said about that, the better. Although that period did introduce me to Pierce Turner, who will be back in the City next weekend. I havenít told Geoffrey; the Sunday night arrangements will be difficult although I do want to see the show.
