a Tina Turner show

BWAHAHA- Yup, are you picturing this already?? Dad's 70th Bday party went off EXTREMELY WELL! Oh goodness, a few didn't arrive (uhummm, still hung over from Tuesday- LOL) but the rest arrived ready for a party. Well, lets just say- I want to be like that when I grow up-= HAHAHAHA,


All the Scorpios in one row- lol, myself on the 4th, and my Dad on the 11th and my Sister Kerry on the 5th November. This was taken before it got a little hectic-lol


MMMM- Foods done- should we eat- or still stand at the bar counter where all the booze is-???- HAHAHAHA, Ok, this is my Uncle Pete in the front- he HAD to behave as he has just had a bi-pass, but I did see him sneaking a sip of liqueur a few times-lol


Oh *we'll stay with the BOOOOOOZE*- hahaha, these lady's had me in STITCHES! The lady on the left is my Dad's girlfriend Kay. The lady in the middle is Ruth who was also a MISS PE(and who worked with my dad over 40 years ago!) And Lizzy on the right- who I have to say has the energy of a woman HALF her age!


So much so that Lizzy did a Tina Turner impersonation for all of us! I didn't manage to get very good pics of it as I had to run for my camera after standing there laughing so much- I forgot to take any- HAHAHA. She actually ran to the bathroom and REMOVED the white blouse ( as the girls where ragging her and egging her on that she wasn't showing enough cleavage to be Tina)- and came back with just that waistcoat TIGHTLY buttoned and everything popping out the sides- BWAHAHAHA, Her boyfriend saw her before she walked back into the lounge and made her go back and change- hee hee. WAS TOO FUNNY.


My dad thought it was the best thing he has seen in years and you can see he had a BLAST! Thanks girls for making dad's party such a fun one! I had a blast too- was just POOP MOEG by 1am when they left- YEAH, GOOD GOING ol toppies! hee hee

Don't you love the *journal month frame* I used for the family photo?


They are Bunny's PhotoLays- these ones are the MONTHS- and they are AWESOME!, you can add them as an overlay or add a layer style like I did- LOVE THEM BUNNY! They are only $2.24 at the moment too!

OOOOh and check these LO's out-
