Happy birthday, Ruth!

It sucks when one of your favorite hanging buddies moves to another city. Ruth left Atlanta about 10 years ago for the D.C. area. Life in our nation’s capital has been an adventure for her, but I miss having her here. At least I get to see her in D.C. every year or two.

Ruth and me, New Year’s Eve 1989, at Mary and Sidell’s place*
Yes, it was the eighties — when fashion was fabulous!
Check out my earrings (still have 'em)! Look at that eye shadow!
Why didn't anyone tell me to put down the wand?

It's Ruth’s birthday today. We had some great birthday celebrations during her Atlanta tenure; I hope her D.C. friends throw a big one for her this weekend. I’m sure she’ll spend the day turning heads and breaking hearts. Wish I could be there with her to toast her — but I’ll hoist one (or four) in Atlanta in her honor.

Happy birthday, Ruth! I love you and miss you … I hope your MBA is now clutched firmly in your hand … and I pray that this year is the start of a great phase in your life. Now, get out there tonight and scandalize me!

* RUTH: This is the only photo I have of you, except for one with you and Brad. I have plenty of photos of Walter, “Power of Attorney” displays, Bob Keegan, Julie Hayden, Brad by himself — but just two of you. We need to remedy that next time I’m in D.C.
