A special birthday

Hanno is celebrating his 75th birthday today. He's asked for a family lunch with no gifts so that's what we're doing. Shane, Kerry, Sunny, Jens, Cathy, Alex and Jamie will join us for lunch tomorrow at a local restaurant.

Today I'm making the cake Hanno asked for - a traditional Black Forest Cake and Shane and Alex will arrive this evening and stay overnight. For the rest of us it's just a short drive up the mountain to the restaurant. We're all looking forward to it.  Happy birthday Hanno!
