The Birthday Lady (in waiting) took the traditional tour around her domain...
and then retired to the deck to watch the festivities.
"Release the Toys!" came the birthday command.
"I'm on it!" yelled Grace.
"We are--each of us--dying; it's how we live in the meantime that makes the difference."
"It's not what you gather, but what you scatter that tells what kind of life you have lived!"
"Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle."
