the MASSIVE birthday party.....

OK, so, you know, its my birthday week, yes indeedy, and I was like, to the wife "what if we had a wee party???". Like when you are a kid, and all the other little friends from your pre-school come over for cake and cookies. I don't think I ever did that, actually, but with turning 45, and a boatload of beers in the fridge, I was thinking some folks might come over.....and they all did. It was packed! Get this: FOUR of us present had birthdays this week, what kind of coincidence is that> Stev0 asked if I had ever had that many people in the studio...and more came later..... But first, coincidentally, it was haircut day for me and the wife down at Michelles. That guarenteed the 2 of us were looking super sexy..... the wife did not know I was taking her picture in embarrasing positions... Benji and Stev0....note clever kiwi-raspberry snack on a stick Arjan and Julie---they were thinking of Oktoberfest and dressing like beer wenches next fall.....I s'pose us dudes would have to find leather shorts....below, Kerry, Brett, Julie and Paul---it was Paul's birthday Saturday, Julie is Monday---I sadly did not get any good pics of Amy whose birthday is also in a couple of days....(what is it with all the April birthdays? you sorta count back nine months and wonder if there is something especially amorous about July????????) Kerry, Brett, Paul and David

Those cookies were monstrously good... and monstrously huge. It took me, like, ten minutes to eat one.

Maude has the sweetest smile. So warm and kind.

Looks like a blast! So many happy people and cookies! You've surrounded yourself with amazing people. The key to a happy life and a happy birthday party!

Youre an awesome dude, Mr. Rith!

Wow! You sure know how to throw a party! Looks like a fine time indeed. You don't look a day over 30. And Maude is stunning! As for April 1st birthdays, my best friend of 37 years celebrates that day and my middle son celebrates April 12th-woohoo for April! Glad you had an awesome day and best wishes for the next year! Oh and tell Georges I hope he had an o.k. day too.
