It was like my local group had a big party to celebrate my big birthday (that's my story, and I like it).
I even finished a new dress just for the occasion. I'd actually started it quite a long time ago, but I'd just never gotten around to the final bits of hand work. I think it turned out pretty well, getting a picture of it was not as easy as you'd think though. I always look rather goofy in pictures and I usually have my eyes closed. So here is a picture of me, on my 50th birthday, wearing my new dress.
It was a nice day. I got to see and visit with a lot of people I don't have the pleasure seeing and visiting with very much, including friends from Canada and South Dakota that I haven't seen for more than a few years. It was quite nice.
The first 50 years were pretty good. I'm looking forward to the next 50!
