We received an invitation to Thelma's birthday party. Unfortunately I didn't read it properly did I, so instead of reading starts at 2.00 pm I read the piece that said fried fish and food at 5.30pm. Well when I realised my massive mistake, I took off anyway and thought at least I could apologise to Thelma. She said that it didn't matter because it was going all evening, and as the golfers finished their game they would be joining in.
I then told her that my ulterior motive was to take some party snaps so that Nellie could view them. Thelma agreed wholeheartedly and so here they are Nell.
Thelma and Millie ~ Millie insisting that they started Kindergarten together. No wonder Miss Bataille had a grey hair!
Rob and Tina. Great couple. He showed me how to take better photos. Let's view on and see if it works!
