Blackout, Bjurstens and Geezer Tennis

It's been a very full and exciting week. I have been playing tennis, and last Saturday, we celebrated Paul Ackerman's 85th birthday. Paul is the founder of this informal group that plays on Saturday and Wednesday mornings. We play doubles in a very competitive but good natured way, forgiving of the failings of others, if not for ourselves. Paul is a lawyer who still assists adoptions.
