Yesterday was my 57th b-day. Blah! Then I was greeted by this online ad, which I found quite funny. Probably because I'm definitely NOT overweight. So......it was an uneventful day, just like any other until about 6 pm when I got a call from my youngest son (almost 18) who was lost with a friend in thick fields of bamboo lining the Santa Ana River bottom. They had attempted to take a shortcut home and had been wandering around down there for the past 2 hours. It was now dark. Cell phone cut out, lost contact. So I decided I'ld better go ahead & call Sheriff's dispatch. Three hours later they were airlifted out via helicopter, cold, dirty, and a little cut up. Happy birthday Mom.
