Esperanza's Birthday Party
Esperanza is one of my dearest friends. She is originally from Ecuador, and still has a strong, beautiful Spanish accent. She gives so much love to everyone around her, she is an inspiration to us all.
Her 70th birthday party was last night, at a small rancho set in the middle of a very industrial area. The place has a house, patio, party room where we met, a big pond encircled by trees that have their trunks painted white up to about four feet high. In the back, if you walk around the pond, is a barn with goats, three nannies and a billy (yes he stunk, but he was the only odoriferous one), and several beautiful horses. Someone later told us that there was an alligator in the pond. (!)
