Family!

Here are my favorite pictures from my dad's 75th birthday party.


Here's everybody arriving at once.


My brother is shaking hands with Walter Cash and his wife, Jo, for the first time.


Jo, Walter, and my godfather, "Uncle" Bob, looking at a slideshow about my dad - with my dad, far right.


My dad's brother Skip, my dad, and my dad's brother Tom. In the doorway of my brother and his wife's bedroom.


My mom, party planner extraordinaire, amidst friends and family.


My dad with his brothers and their mother's first cousin, Walter. They're a handsome bunch, right?


This cake was huge! It's hard to tell in this picture!


Here's another picture of the cake, shown for scale.


And ME! With my incredibly cool Godmother, Pat.

Re: wow.....

He's the eldest brother. He doesn't look his age, does he! Except for the white hair ~ and he always blamed his grey hair on me. Generally speaking, I think happiness is another factor in looking younger, longer.

A number of people in that room are older than he is. I won't say which ones.

Cheers! <3

Well then, happy 75th to YOUR dad, too!

Haha, yes! A green bindi! I got carried away, accessorizing, but I thought it was appropriate. What do you think?

Off topic:
Susie what are the prices of tickets at the Dubai multiplex. Also what is the traffic congestion charge that those electronic masts charge when you drive through?

Someone here was saying ticket prices were AED 340/- per ticket and traffic poll charges AED 250 to 350 per shot per drive through.

Do you mean the movie theater? Movie tickets are 30 dhs each.

The road toll is 4 dhs per drive through, and the balance is stored on, and deducted from, a toll tag. So if you don't have a tag, the fine for driving through the first couple of times is 200 dhs, and after that, 400 dhs each.
