My Birthday Dinner

My friends here in Kachidoki (Tokyo) threw me for a loop with a surprise dinner for my 54th birthday. Complete surprise for me! It was at a small Indian/Nepalese restaurant in our neighborhood which has become one of our favorites... so we had Americans, Canadians, Indians, Australians, New Zealanders, Nigerians, and Japanese eating Nepalese food in Tokyo... we made quite the little United Nations!

The prime instigator was Scott McCaskie (in the last photo with his arm around Carl). Thanks, Scott!

Owner is Nepalese, and gave me a bottle of Nepalese rum, a product I would not have guessed existed. Surprisingly good, quite mild

Party at Reese's

Dave Reese always has a party on the last Sunday before Christmas. He has a beach house on Palm Beach which has been a gathering place for surfers and beach volleyball players for years. I met him through the people I used to play volleyball with. We had great weather... 84deg
