April 10, 2011. My 60th birthday triple surprise!
byPeter D. MarshallonApril 11, 2011
On April 10, 2011 I turned 60! Hmmm. I guess I’m going to have to get used to seeing that 6! (But isn’t 60 the new 50?)
My surprise weekend started on Friday night when Trilby and I went for sushi dinner. We usually go to our little sushi place on Friday’s but Trilby suggested we go to the larger one across the street this night. When we went in, I was shocked to see my 3 sisters (Judy from Australia and Sue & Mimi from Saskatchewan.) They came to Vancouver this weekend to surprise me (with Trilby’s help of course!) My first birthday candle of the weekend was stuck in my wasabi! Now that was a first 🙂
Saturday night, Trilby had another surprise lined up for me. She took us to The Wolf and Hound to listen to Roolya Boolya, the Celtic power duo of my friend Mark Downey and Mary Brunner. A few friends of ours were already there and throughout the night, many more friends showed up as well. The party raged on with lots of eating, drinking, laughing and of course, dancing!
Sunday was brunch with my daughter Meghan and a phone call to my son Andrew in Montreal. Then off to Trolls in Horseshoe Bay for their famous fish and chips. And my last birthday candle of the weekend!
And of course, none of this could have been possible without Trilby who put this whole event together. Thank you for making this birthday one of the most memorable of my life. I love you!
