I Was Going to Have Another Bar Mitzvah But ... .

13th Leap Year Birthday February 29, 1988 South Florida My Leap Year birthday fell on a Monday in 1988 and the party was at The Golden Spike, an excellent buffet restaurant that had, at that time, the best Carrot Cake in town. I didn’t know about, or even if they were available, digital cameras back then or I would have a load of pictures. I am looking at my notes back from that evening and there were 29 guests and, sadly, 19 have died in the past 31 years plus I don’t know what happened to 5 others. Though I love being old that is definitely one of the negatives! The Golden Spike and the other restaurants I have mentioned are no longer in business which has nothing to do with me having my Leap Year birthdays in them though it seems to continue the next few years.

Carrot cake really takes the excitement out of a celebration.
