Birthday Bash Crazyness

Pipestone Flyer

Mary Litwin of Leduc celebrated her 80th birthday on June 22  in St Michaels Catholic Church. An open house was held from 2 to 4. The family presented a power point showing Mary's life in 10 year segments. Approximately 60 people were in attendance including George Rogers, MLA.

    For the occasion her friends put on a Fun Fashion Show with the following participants.         From left to right: Shirley Bourque in her tea dress, with matching Red Rose handbag, and 'cosy' tea hat. Green tea, sling back sandals complete her ensemble. Betty Touring in her pin stripe suit, with double-breasted jacket (the back is not shown here). The bowler hat completes her ensemble. Paul Phillips in his polka dot boxer shorts which are completely reversible to ladies undies! His wife Bernadette is kneeling in front of him in her royal blue halter top. This couple is heading for the beach, and have matching straw hats and Bernadette has her sand pail and sun screen. 

    Next to her is Susan Lavalle with her 14 carat necklace, matching earrings and bracelet. Gum boots complete her ensemble. Kendra is next … with that winning smile and her trendy hat and blue briefcase, she's ready for anything!

    Beside Paul is Hilda Laarz, resplendent in her billowing seersucker dress and elegant matching earrings. On her feet were the newest style of shoe, the penny sneakers, which I predict will be obsolete before they catch on. Next to her is Anne Wilhauk with her cheque dress and matching purse. There's only one way she could have gotten her cheques back and I noticed a couple that fell off as she did her walk, they bounced really well. Her pill box hat completes her ensemble, and I noticed aspirin, a laxative and geritol! 

    Then Doris Giles in her sack dress, nicely accented by her white lace collar. A Pill box hat, the 24 pac size, completes her ensemble. Then Mary Ryan in her print dress with matching hat. The very latest I'd say since it was that day's Journal; good choice Mary as black and white are a must in anyone's wardrobe. She says if you missed the sports that morning, you can catch them on her right hip. Maria Cornish is next in her rainbow wrap-around dress. This can be purchased at Walmart but it's a 'do-it-yourself' dress and comes

in 4 rolls for $2.99. 

    Very creative Maria with the plunging neckline! Maria didn't know what to wear on her feet and finally just came with her 'bear' feet! Beside her is Kathy Zuchotzki, in her French loafers, black capri's, and an old fashioned bun in her hair. Last lady on the right is Ann Filliatreau, wearing a kinky spring hat. She hopes the monsoon season we're having won't cause it to rust. 

    And last but not least is Patrick Litwin who's wearing his white tie (hangmans's noose) and tails. Tails is the understatement, as he swished by me I saw four or five, including a fox tail, a zebra, a horses' tail, possibly a beavertail, as well as a lions tail. He said this outfit was a leftover from his daughters' graduations … they definitely must have been dress-up affairs!

    Missing is yours truly, Gerry Procychyn who was a common-tater in her round, brown garb sporting multiple eyes.
