We knew it would not be dull. It never is when Mz. Dogie Lou is around. And, today was her 87th birthday.
She has not been around much. Not at the Koffee Klatch for months nor at our Friday lunches. So an email was sent telling her there were no excuses good enough for her to miss her birthday.
We ALL held our breaths to see if she would show up. The balloons were blown up and attached to the chairs, the carrot cake from Casa Feliz was acquired and we waited.
All arrived at 11AM on the dot. No Dogie Lou or Frank. By 11:15 I was getting ready to roll up the balloons and cut the cake. I should have known she would want to make an "entrance". And she did in her usual dazzling style.
Below are the rip roaring photos of about 16 of us laughing, drinking cappuccinos and reveling in the fact that this woman we all care about so much, still has the same spunk and silliness........even at the ripe old age of 87.
