This morning I went down to the Registry of Motor Vehicles to renew my driver's license. When I got home after that, I found a birthday card in my mailbox from a former co-worker.

What's a birthday without cake? I just finished baking a cake, and willo soon be enjoying a slice topped by yogurt. smiley - drool

No to all of the above. A lot of people must have been there on their birthdays, because that's the day when a license needs to be renewed. They were pleasant. I'll give them that. smiley - smiley

I took a tip from your mention of Anne Perry's Victorian mystery series. I'm about a quarter of a way through her Agatha-nominated book "Face of a Stranger." So far, so good.

I agree. Conan Doyle also excelled at that with his Sherlock Holmes stories. "Face of a Stranger" adds a unique twist by having the protagonist try to solve the mystery of who he is even as he is solving a murder mystery. This gives the readers a reason to care about the detective as well as the identity of the murderer. Two mysteries in one story.smiley - smiley
