If you are connected to me on Facebook, you may have noticed that Ron turned 74 years young on July 1, 2012. However, he was in the US at the time, so yesterday, I had a small birthday celebration for him with a most delicious ice cream cake.
Generally, it is difficult to have Hungarian folks at our parties; they always have a dozen other things on their agendas. Our friend Anna was taking her family to spend the weekend with her brother. Laszlo is generally at his house in the country on weekends. Balazs and Edit were visiting her parents in another city. We were fortunate to have some former Fulbrighters who have not left the country yet, come grace us with their presence. We were able to include a new friend as well, so the seven of us talked for hours that felt like minutes. It was a delightful afternoon and evening enjoyed by all.
The cake was a raspberry and dark chocolate combo that was well worth the price. So this was another happy birthday for Ron.
