Happy Surprise Birthday Elaine

Party time

Ray had asked me to take photos at his wife’s surprise birthday party today.

I drove on down the road to his place around three. The cooks were at it when I arrived with this big portable BBQ. Nice rig.cooks



At the proper time we all went out on the bridge on the road by their place to greet Elaine the birthday girl in the red car.meetup


She was surprised and got out of the car and gave out some hugs. That’s Elaine in the pink.elaine


We all got off the road before someone got run over and went back to the house.people


The cooks were cooking up a storm, well, er chicken anyway.cookers


The back deck was kept real busy with lots of bull going on, I mean visiting.porch2


Lots of people on the side of the house too. I know quite a few of them as a lot of them are locals I went to school with many years ago.party


More visiting on the back deck. Everyone was real friendly.porch

Cake cutter upper

And here’s the cake getting cut up by a very capable cake cutter upper and Elaine is checking out the cake. It looked like real good cake, but none for me cause of my corn stuff.cake

    Thank you, Bob, for this lovely blog post! It’s so wonderful that you have been in my life all these years — and in Ray’s even longer! The pix are terrific, and I’m slowly going through the all the ones you downloaded for me. Rich, Jane and David are still here — so I probably won’t get to serious photo editing until they leave Thursday!
    You are terrific!

    Happy Birthday, Elaine! Nice to have a handy photographer and a cake cutter upper nearby when you need one! Love the surprise parties! Heck, any party with friends, wine and cake. :)
