"A man's only as old as the woman he feels."
Alison's Birthday Celebration Continues in Scottsdale, AZ!
Tim, Jule, Al, Mom and Paul gather
for a delicious spaghetti feast homecooked by Maman!
Alison thought it was just going to be the five of them...
....then the doorbell rang!
It was Wilma Budthert with the U.S. Census Bureau (really Erin with a pair of Mr. Magoo Glasses and some fake "Eleanor Roosevelt" teeth). The joke didn't go on too long because Er and Al were laughing too hard.
Mom made a beautiful sostanza cake
Al still has the lungpower to extinguish all 50!!
As Al and Tim were leaving to go home, Donny and Suzanne came screeching into the driveway, just off their flight from DC!
We took a gorgeous 6-mile hike to
Inspiration Point the next morning
Tim organized a fantastic surprise party at Mastro's Steakhouse in Scottsdale on Friday night. A bevy of beautiful gals and handsome lads assembled to surprise Al and carry on the golden celebration.....
