Saturday night Peggy and I hosted a total of 13 people for dinner at The Fort, a wonderful (and expensive) restaurant near Denver, in celebration of my retirement. It had been originally scheduled a month earlier, but I changed it to March 8 so everyone could show up.

Someone in the party told the waitress that the next day was my birthday, and the next thing I knew the wait staff came out with a buffalo headdress for me to wear while the staff and patrons gave three cheers. The picture is posted on The Fort's web site:

Click on photo gallery and then look at the pictures displayed. My picture is currently on the first page, the first column, third picture down from the top. They apparently add new pictures at the top, so this order may change. If so, look for March 8, 2003 on the picture. I have a graying beard and am wearing a blue buttondown oxford shirt, no tie.

I think it may have been the frosty beverages that let your gaurd down. (You look a little *starry-eyed)

Congrats on both dates.

Dear TEd: Have you a special pun for the occasion?

Hey, TEd, for a minute there I thought (hoped) you were the mandolin player on the front page!

from the restaurant link:

"It's clear that Sam Arnold's zest for living stems not from a sprinkle of grated lemon rind, but from the roasted whole chile of life"

Congrats TEd. As I said once before, now you're gonna get REAL busy!!

So what's an "oxford" shirt? Why? What other name would I know it as? A "business" shirt perhaps?

(Gotta be a word topic somewhere here folks....)

Congratulations on your graduation into real life, TEd.
(and thanks for the advance warning of what you look like - at my time of life, sudden shocks aren;t too good for me )

An oxford shirt is made of a heavier coarser cloth, called, surprisingly enough, oxford cloth.

this site says it has white threads going one way and colored the other but I've seen white oxford cloth.
