Five of the celebrities were available for the celebration

Sylvia writes in a group e-mail:  Yes, we had a very nice get-together this morning.  It was good to see everyone.  Thanks to Nancy for bringing the cake...and it was yummy.  And thanks Lynne, for putting all the tree plans in place....and we got 'er done.  It will be a beautiful tree and an asset to the well as the others that have been planted.

Lynne provided details to the group about the tree—an oak—and reported on those of us who couldn’t make the trip to help in the celebration. She also arranged for the local paper to do a write up on the event and stopped back at the Campus CafĂ©  to thank them.

Looking through my file, I found a party photo in the way-back machine.  Nancy’s birthday party 66 years ago in 1952—with a few ladies of our class—Sara, Lynne, Dorothy, Fran, Nancy, Norma, Pris, Betty, Deb, Donna, Kay, and Barb.

For all our birthdays in 2018--a rap by Lynne

Tracking on 80, a rap by Lynne Wilburn

I have my own teeth,
my eyes are the best in the house,
sense of direction still good,
balance better than most.
I can still climb a ladder,
haul groceries from the car,
hang clothes on the lines,
cut the grass and
scoop the porches after snow and
I can still walk five miles a day.

I can't use my phone
and Windows 10 is a stinker.
I don't always smell good at the end of the day
or sleep through the night,
but I can still read and remember
and look forward to another year,
and I can still hope for the best.

Note:  This is from an actual e-mail.  All I did was space it out a little--and of course, got Lynne's permission.
