Then there was somebody who turned 75 recently.
Here he is a couple of days ago eating an individually wrapped chocolate from the box a friend left for him for his birthday.
As an extreme introvert with no online community, these past few months have been harder than David had imagined. His usual casual engagements at our local bakery have been put on hold and I have had to do our shopping. This has left him with mostly just me… and though this is not a problem, well, it also is just not quite enough interaction with our fellow human beings either. So for his birthday, I posted this photo on my personal FaceBook profile. To my amazement, over 100 people, including family, old friends, new friends and people he had yet to get to know from around the world, stopped by to wish him happy birthday and on occasion tell “a David story”. It took us two and half days for me to, as promised, read all the birthday wishes aloud. But what fun we had! Next year however, I think I will give him socks and call it good. 😉
