Weekend Update

Celebrating 50 Years!

Saturday evening, my friend, Larry, celebrated his 50th year "Las Vegas" style at a birthday party put together for him by his wife, Michelle. Highlights of the evening:

1. We were all told upon arrival, if we didn't put $ 100.00 in our birthday cards for Larry, we would have to perform a karaoke song. Of course, everyone just laughed this off but, there were two takers... his wife performed "Dreaming" by Vanessa Williams and my wife performed "Walk On By" by Dionne Warwick.

2. In true Las Vegas style, there was a Black Jack table set up for all of the "high rollers" in the house, complete with a house dealer, cards, chips, and everything. I'm not much of a gambler myself so, I just watched and learned. (No money involved... it was all in fun!)

3. There was an "open bar"... nuff said but, you'll be happy to know that everyone behaved themselves-lol!

4. The menu was "all that", consisting of greens, string beans, wild rice, potato salad, macaroni & cheese, baked chicken, fried chicken, fried fish, cornbread, and of course... the birthday cake!

5. We had an excellent DJ who kept us up on the dance floor with the 15,000 tracks he had loaded into his computer. (OMG!) I had a quick conversation with him about the technology he was using and I GUESS it made sense in this setting... he probably couldn't carry 15,000 records or CDs-lol!

6. We got a chance to see and learn the latest line dance called the "Cuban Linx".

7. Larry's celebritory dance... he was dancing while surrounded by every women in the place and they were dancing in a circle around him (and yes, his wife was among them) -lol!

Hey, how 'bout that? Exactly seven things. This could have been my Saturday 7 post too-lol! Anyway, here are some of the photos:

Maaaaan, I can TELL y'all had a GOOD time! The pics are a fitting testimony to it. There's something about the bomb-azz energy of Vegas that brings out the kid in an adult. You feel like anything is possible, at least for a little while.

Happy Natal Day to your friend Larry. This is a cat who knows how to make that Big 5-0 memorable!

Snatch JOY!

One.
