HAPPY BIRTHDAY MAMIE!
Girl, all I can say is HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!!! I hope you will have a great day today! I have known Mame, or David Dust, one of my closest and dearest friends for years and years and years now and I can't tell y'all how good a friend Mame is. If there is one person to keep one in stitches and laughter it's my good friend Mame. Since y'all like old stories of Maddie and Mame one of her birthday's does come to mind. It was one of the very first birthday parties they had for her when I first met Mame. Our gang was very fond of throwing a cock-a-tail party for anything. Well our good friend Glen, God rest his soul, had a birthday party for Mame one year. I remember it being very hot and poor Glen didn't have on the air so we were all fanning ourselves with paper plates when the host wasn't looking. I remember both our faces melting before our eyes.It was a nice turn out and it was where Mame and I really bonded. I gave her a bottle of liquor of some kind, and we were thick ever since. And she did get some swell presents that year. Mame got her first pearl necklace, not that kind, get your minds out of the gutter, the kind every respectable woman has, a strand of lovely creme colored pearls. She had received a fan I believe and she also receive some adult novelties never to be seen again. (Note to self,when I go up this weekend remind me to look under the cushions of the sofa!)
Oh, anywho, it was a lovely party and we later just laughed and talked the night away. It was the night we really bonded like I said and we were the blond twins ever since when we went to the local cha-cha palace. And it was also Mame, Mamie! who introduced me to the South American mens! Variety is the spice of life she said. So I'd like to take this time to say thank-you for being my good life long friend, sister and family! You have been there through the good and bad, family losses and all the drunken calls, many dinners, parties, camp fires, bean dip fests and just to talk. Hell, a year ago I started this blog because of your inspiration. Thank you for being who you are. I can't wait for this weekend! You, me, Ginger, and the Urges! This is just spelling a good time!
And I just couldn't resist a birthday greeting from Aunt Barbara! Again Happy Birthday Mame! We love ya!
