June 11

Last night we went to the surprise 50th birthday party of our friend Lori. Her hubby had a small decoy party last week so she was surprised by this one!

Here are a few funny statements from one of her cards.
50 is a long time! Did you realize that when you were a kid:
Remote meant a secluded spot, off the beaten path
Cable was something that supported a bridge
A video game was trying to make out the snowy images on a 10 inch black and white tv screen
A cell phone was for your one phone call from jail
A calculator was who you hired to do your taxes
An airbag was some guy who talked too much.

A lot has changed in 50 years!

I agree. I was talking with someone yesterday about carbon paper. Kids today would say "WHAT". You've got to be kidding. We've come a long way..

That's one great looking cake!
And 50 years ago there were no Post-its, fax machines, iPods, Facebooks or laptops. How did we EVER survive :-)

Happy rest of your weekend.
