MY SEVENTIETH BIRTHDAY SAGA 2:

THE BIRTHDAY PARTY

A scrumptious meal was laid-out.
Steve, Aurelio, Ted and Steve.
Ted, Me surprised by something, Drew and Bonnie.
A surprise birthday cake by Jen's mother was brought out by Steve.
Not just any birthday cake, but a huge, triple-layer Pineapple Upside Down Birthday Cake!!

Presents were nonexistent as requested, but the cards were a delight—one extra large card had Tina Turner singing, "You're Simply the Best," when opened. What a touching hoot!

There were Steve and Lee, Drew, Ted, Steve and Ray, Marilyn, Aurelio, Bonnie, Mari, Deo, Mary Ann, Jim and Diane, Winnie and Jeanine, Jen, Kevin et Moi there.

It lasted on into the night, breaking up about 1 A.M.

A MOVIE!


Diane, Kevin and Marilyn
Me and Steve. Friends for nearly THIRTY years!
Aurelio, Drew, Bonnie and Ted.
  ---a splendiferous start to my eighth decade.
