An Old Guy's Birthday
If that wasn’t enough they took Anna and me out to dinner at a fairly new place in Burien. Italian place called 909 and the ravioli special was terrific. Three cheese raviolis. And a chocolate cake that was scrumptious. Best of all was the jazz keyboard player with the portable keyboard that plays different voices as well as laying down a bass and drum beat. Paul Richardson really knows his way around the keys. Then along came Miss Josephine Howell, singer and dancer. She did both, moving from the front of the narrow little restaurant right through the room, singing and playing to the crowd, encouraging people to get up and dance, getting the crowd involved in greeting people as they came in and waving with loud goodbyes to those leaving. Fine singing and fine jazz piano. We stayed for their entire first set and enjoyed the entertainment immensely. We made sure to tell them so when we left and had everybody wave goodbye to us. It was a fun evening. And a great birthday celebration.
