Column: A happy but subdued birthday during coronavirus

I manage to celebrate my birthday with friends over what was a very strange weekend for us all. Coronavirus conversation dominates, I take in one last movie and then go to a friend’s half-empty wedding party. That chronicle makes up Wednesday’s column.

    Part of me wants to agree with your Claremont friend who said we’re overreacting. But part of me knows that we need to be careful and keep things from getting worse. Either way, I’m glad you got to celebrate your birthday before everything shut down. Happy belated birthday!

    Today is my granddaughter’s 30th BD–I won’t get to see her in person but talked with her on the phone. I want her safety above all else.

    David, and, happy belated BD to you of course! These are your best years so make the most of them.

      I can’t make the most of them right now, Shirley, but I know what you mean and will do the best I can until things open up again.
