This a a shot taken at my friend Dianne's 65 Birthday party Friday night. (She's the blond behind the flower arrangement). It was a great party and fitting tribute to a great "girl". (Note.. women are known as "girls" forever more.) They had a band, supper, video of her past, many cakes....a comedian known as "Bubba" who was terrific. It was so much fun my 9 year old granddaughter Hannah who went with me said, "Nana, that was the best birthday party I've ever been to!!"
The next day, I was off to Charleston with two college friends to visit a third college friend in the hospital. I don't think I could have laughed more that day if I had seen 12 Jim Carey movies back to back. We girls are getting funnier by the minute as we age. Just keeping up with our purses is a hilarious challenge....not to mention finding the parking lot, and the room in a huge hospital. (It helps if you get off on the right floor and don't just follow the first person who gets off the elevator).
We girls know how to make a trip to the hospital pleasant. Stop regularly for food (and potty), have lunch at a WONDERFUL Charleston restaurant, and stop to pick up pralines fresh off the stove.... oh and buy a little jewelry if you have a mind to.
So you youngsters out there reading this....do not fear old age....it is a blast.....like fine wine, women get better with age. Make friends now (and hold on to those you got) they will be a huge blessing in your later years!
