| The Birthday Queen!
|| The decade-change must be noted.
|| Royal alarm notwithstanding, all is well.
|| There are platters of beet carpaccio....
|| ...Allen's margaritas....
|| (TGM = truly good margaritas)
| ... and other beautiful foods.

|| The Birthday Queen!
|| All are very content.
|| But wait, WHO are these interlopers?

|| Just a bit of incomprehension.
|| Connie, Tommy, & Allen have a bit of explaining to do.
