Here is a picture of me, the real me, taken at my little surprise party.
Not much better than the hag, but better.
I like this picture, though, because it shows Johanna and her friend Kate, David Welliver (whose...er...melodious...voice dominated the "Happy Birthday" song ;) ), and Jon and Emily Fitzpatrick (friends who recently moved away and it was so wonderful to see them and hang out with them).
And every one of those dear people are smiling.
I love it when people I love are smiling.
