Instead of creating a brand new Follies this week, I
thought I would share with you the invitation I created
for my 50th Birthday Party last weekend.
I made this back during the summer when I was
trying to learn the new PageMaker program. It was
great practice, and I learned a great deal fooling with
it. That is one of the nice things about doing the Fol-
lies every week....it gives me a chance to practice some of
the things I have or am trying to learn. One of these
days, I will send you some of the brochures I have done,
and you will be able to “see” some of the things I used
that I taught myself by doing the Follies each
week....see there is a method to my madness...
At any rate. Enjoy! I sent this out to a few girl
friends and had a lovely weekend. So much so, that I
am thinking about making it an annual event...without
the birthday, though. (I cut and pasted it, so I hope it
Take care and remember...Life is short.
We need to make it a good one.
Grow in Peace and Wisdom.
Your Friday Friend,
PS. NOTE OF CAUTION… 20 employees
were fired from The New York Times here in Nor-
folk for sending lewd and indecent e-mails. (To my
knowledge, none of the 20 were on our list - even
though some of the attorneys who represent the com-
pany were!) I have asked each and every one of you on
this list to tell me if these "Follies" place you in jeop-
ardy, or even if they offend you. Please understand
that they are intended to be light-hearted and are not
mean-spirited in any way. If you are ever offended, do
not hesitate to ask to be taken off the Friday list.
PSS. If you send a joke and I don't use it, it is
because it has been used before, and I try not to repeat.
Remember, I have been sending these since August of
1997. You tend to go through huge numbers of jokes that way.
Disclaimer: When anyone asks if I type all of these jokes, the
answer is, "No!" I cut and paste one evening during the week (30
minutes, TOPS). I don't have time to sit, read, and retype jokes
Come Celebrate Life and
Friendship at this
50th Birthday Party for...

forget your age!”
