The biggest event of the week in the Wohlner house was the 24th birthday of our daughter Jennifer yesterday. We missed being with her (she lives in LA) but it sounds like she had a great time going out with her friends. Happy Birthday Jen!

This is the weekend for Bobofest (the PG version of the actual name) which is the annual gathering of some of the Old Boyz of the Whitefish Bay High School class of ’76. The tall tales get taller each year. Bobo’s lake house in Southern Wisconsin will be the scene of the action tomorrow. On a serious note, the festivities will be dampened a bit by the recent passing of our good friend and classmate, Bob Tilden. Bob was a regular at Bobofest and he will be missed.
Here’s wishing everyone a great weekend.
