A first (and a birthday)

This is the first ever blog post I'm writing from my Blackberry. Now that is what I call dedication. I'm doing it despite the fact that reading or writing while driving makes me feel pretty queasy. Hey, I stick to my guns. I'm attempting this because we are on our way to a birthday celebration (happy 60th Jimmy!) and I know if I don't do this now, I will decide it's not worth it later on when I'm in bed with my latest mystery.

And it is worth it, both to give a birthday shout out and to keep you all from accusing me of not living up to my challenge. Also, it's been worth it to test the limits of my car sickness (current status: badly in need of a ginger ale and some fresh air).
