Jud Has A Birthday...

All hail the Birthday King! (The cape was made by our talented friend, Barbara, charter member 
of the Committee of Mothers).


The Birthday King presides over the appetizers.


The Birthday King gets a big hug from his wife...


and his loving daughter.


The Gillises (the Queen's family) are represented by Floyd, from Kansas City.


Friends come from afar. Kathie from the Black Hills reconnects with Karen from Saint Paul.


A strawberry souffle cake feeds the masses...


...while our friends continue to do what they do best...talk.


As things wind down, Becky, of the Committee of Mothers, is there to lend a helping hand. Thanks to everyone who brought an appetizer to share. 

A good time was had by all.

  7. Hi Sweet Friend!

    It looks like you all had a GREAT Birthday Celebration! Ooooooh, Where's my cake? LOL

    This is one of those "Celebration" Moments I was talking about! Of course it's a birthday, so a BIT larger than just a "Good cup of Coffee" or the "Smell of Fresh Sheets."

    But Suz, I Do understand that right NOW, you appreciate the little things too. How can you not?

    When I posted on Tuesday, I just had found out that a good friend of mine has "Lymphoma." She's got a Mass in her stomache and a Mass in her Lung..........I've known her and her hubby for over 35 years. She is a dear, my Jodene.

    And I'm hoping and praying for the best. And I KNOW YOU of all people understand! So While we're praying,,let look for the "Celebrations" in the Little Things!

    Hugs, Love and a "Celebratory" Bus for the little Every day Celebrations!
