It's that "Time" of the Year...My Birthday! The actual date was May 17th...but the party was on ...May 18th! First,the venue was changed one week before_(circumstances beyond my friend's control),some of the group friends couldn't make it,the menu & decor was a quick throw together...since the party was originally planned around my girlfriend's pool....I was getting kinda sad! NEVER FEAR...where only a few "Good Friends" are gathered_there's still a PAR-TEE!
Sooooo,here's some of the happenings! We missed the other Ladies...Karen,Shelly,Amy,Bev..
