Thierry's Birthday

Shirley and Gary attended a petanque-themed birthday party at their friend Thierry's place in southeast Austin, Texas, on December 20, 2008.

Thierry is one of the most talented players in the Heart of Texas club that recently formed in the general Austin area. Besides being such a good player, he's just a real joy to be around. You can get some sense of that by the picture on the left. He's the barefoot guy front and center.

On what developed into a cold, windy Texas evening, Thierry's little get-together must have drawn around forty people-- petanqe players and non-players alike. As the saying goes, "A wonderful time was had by all." Here's wishing Thierry many happy returns.

A few other snaps Shirley made during the course of the evening:
