There is a first time for everything, but this really came as a surprise to one and all; especially me.  After an particularly fun and amazing birthday party with an absolutely incredible celebrant and audience, Latte, the dove for the Grand Finale, flew away. This is not unusual, he if very feisty and often gets away.  What happened next was extremely unusual.  He flew directly into the middle of the Birthday Cake!  Hilarity ensued.  The children thought it was the funniest thing ever, the adults were aghast.  The bird was unharmed, and the host was incredibly gracious.  How did I get so lucky to have such an understanding clientele?
