It's my Lolo Cente's birthday today and though he is no longer with us, we celebrated his birthday yesterday with a potluck lunch at home.

Tita Paro and Tito Felix in Houston "joined" us for lunch via Skype. We placed my laptop on the dining table so they could participate in our table talk! Cousin Ivy from the mesas of Pinon, Arizona also Skyped in. ::sigh:: How they missed our good old Filipino fare and wished they could have a plateful of our lunch.
