I returned home Monday night from Detroit. I spent Tuesday doing a month’s worth of expense reports. It took hours. My granddaughter Camila came over and we spent time alone — she’s just a few months old — and I carried her around the house and sang Do you Want To Dance, the Bobby Freeman version. I exchanged emails with my editor who assigned me to attend and write about Wednesday’s Giants parade and celebration.. If you see me there say hello. I helped Mrs. Cohn Zohn make dinner, a red pasta sauce and I opened a Haywood Estate Zin — very nice. Grant has a week off from the Niners because of the bye but he’s already planning what to write from home. Friday night we are celebrating my 67th birthday at our house (my actual birthday is November 1). The company includes — Mrs. Cohn Zohn, Grant, his girlfriend Swasti, my stepson Brian, his wife Carolyn, and his two little kids Sam and Camila. I am thrilled to be home and to celebrate my birthday with the people I love. I hope your life is as good as mine.

    Hey Lowell, Happy birthday.

    In a future column, would love to see your take on what you think the Giants should do in the off season, they have quite a few players that they need to sign or let go.

    Happy Birthday and welcome home. It sounds like you feel like a champion as well. Good for you!
    I will not be at the parade because of the crowds and traffic. Maybe i’ll see you next season or at some winery unexpectedly.

    I will enjoy the craziness of halloween with the family. My son is 13 and doesn’t want to trick or treat anymore.

    He’ll join me and my neighbors sitting near a fire on the driveway handing out good candy and offering a glass of wine to the parents.

    If I’m lucky enough to make 67, I hope it’s spent with loving family.

    You share a birthday with my soon to be 5 year old grandson. November 1 is a special day to me also. My grandson roots for the Giants. He doesn’t read your column yet. I don’t think he roots for it.

    Happy Birthday and welcome home. I was thinking of going to the parade, but don’t enjoy the crush of a crowd anymore. So I’ll open a nice Chardonnay and watch it from the comfort of my couch. Hope to run into you somewhere soon. Love Neal’s idea for a column, btw.

    Isn’t it nice when you come to understand that it’s not the junk you get, but the people with whom you celebrate, that matters? Enjoy your celebration with your loved ones. Happy Birthday.

    Kelsey Grammer took his months old daughter to the Playboy mansion. Jealous? or creeped out?
