I remember being able to get up without making sound effects ... good times!
Heather Tarrent recently enjoyed her 75th birthday and friends felt it was significant enough to make a fuss about. The theme was 1960s!
Heather had hosted a Mother's Day lunch at her place in May, with the theme of: "food our mother would have prepared, clothes that she would have worn" etc. and it was such a hit that they wanted another themed party.
Heather made her dress out of leftovers, and the sleeve flounces were as psychedelic as she could find (a cut-up $5 skirt from Vinnies).
She recreated "go-go" boots with borrowed white boots and long white socks. Her next door neighbour, Terry McDonough, brought along her guitar and sang some '60s songs and they reminisced about the era, e.g. Where were you when man landed on the moon? Wow that was 1969!
Time flies when you are growing old!
Happy birthday last Monday to gorgeous Leah Holmes, ex Maranatha but still in touch with all of her Batemans Bay friends daily.
Debbie Pakis (nee Reynolds and she looks a wee bit like the famous movie star as well) has enjoyed a birthday this week as well. I hope you had a great day Debbie.
Fernanda Taylor had a lovely catch-up with gorgeous grand-daughter Elle McBride on a flying visit from Queensland. Fernanda, Frank O'Brien and Elle enjoyed lunch at the Bodalla Dairy.
If you are wondering what is happening at Cullendulla Beach ... contractors have begun removing an old sewer main from the beach - marking the end of a very long project for Eurobodalla Shire Council.
The original pipe to service Long Beach was laid in the mid-1980s.
