Carole's studio. We had the street blocked off and had a live band the Valley Cats play. We served Southern-style barbecue inside and dancing outside. FUN!!! My dear friend Eileen came from St. Paul to Athens to be with Carole and me for 2 days and the party. That was one of the most special gifts I could've asked for. Life is all about our relationships and living in the moment - nothing's more special than spending time with family and friends, and that was what our birthday celebration was all about! Here are just a few pics!
Just after picking up Eileen at the airport!
Carole and I each had our own cakes, and here we are cutting pieces for our guests. Mine had a rainbow and sunshine and Carole's - flowers and sun. :) (Carole's in foreground, me in back)
My Dad STILL can cut a rug like nobody's business!
A fun group of us!
Eileen, Yvonne, & Marcia!
Sister Grace played some tunes while the Valley Cats took their break. A shot of Carole on drums!
Carole and Van Trent who was like a big brother to Carole and me growing up. He's a great dancer, too... ;)))
