Birthday wishes go out to a dear friend of mine, Alice An­der­son, of Wash­ing­ton. She will cel­e­brate her spe­cial day on Fri­day, June 28. Alice is so sweet and gen­er­ous, bub­bling with en­ergy all the time, al­ways with a smile on her face, and will do any­thing for any­one. She is a busy bee when it comes time for the Wash­ing­ton Christ­mas pa­rade. I could keep go­ing on about her in a good way. Bot­tom line, Alice is a Rap­pa­han­nock Jewel for keeps.

Birthday wishes also go out to my brother, John Wayne Burke, who cel­e­brates his spe­cial day Fri­day, (July 5), and to my neigh­bor, Gin­ger Miller, who cel­e­brates July 13. (Roger, make sure you take your wife out for a nice steak din­ner and don’t for­get the flow­ers.)
