Today was a very special day here in La Quinta, California. My very special student, and fellow blogger, Melitas Forster turned 95! The day started off with a special birthday greeting from the Channel 2 news morning team. That afternoon over 50 of my students and friends of Melitas joined together for a special surprise happy hour party for her. I was thrilled to have been a part of this joyous occasion. Those of us who have the privilege of knowing Melitas are very blessed. She is definitely a one of a kind individual. I am a richer person for having known her…so cheers Melitas, I look forward to having a drink with you very soon!
