Art Icon Turns '39'
Original post made by John Barry, Danville, on Aug 3, 2010
On the cool, breezy night of July 30, Beth, friends, colleagues, and students celebrated her "39th" birthday at her Alamo home.
A pickup band consisting of two middle-aged guitarists and a 15-year-old drummer whose brother is a student of Beth's supplied live music. Between sets, recorded big-band music pervaded the patio and an impromptu dance party erupted. In the midst of all this, a violinist joined the band for a rousing rendition of "Happy Birthday."
A splendid time was had by all, and I look forward to Beth's "49th" next year, at which time I hope to have overcome my occasional tendency to transpose digits.
