GG's Birthday Brunch

We celebrated Grandmom's 80th birthday at Ralph's on the Park. The brunch was delicious and the setting was perfect. We all enjoyed hanging out on the balcony overlooking City Park and having a private room to ourselves. It was particularly nice because Lucy was able to run around all over the place and play with the my little pony and comb and brush set GG brought with her. I don't think the other patrons would have tolerated having their hair brushed by Lucy while they ate.

The menu was excellent:

as was the company

and there were various lovely toasts in honor of Grandmom, the May pole. If you weren't there and want to know more about that story I will fill you in.

Papa George also reminded us all about when Grandmom was voted one of the Best Dressed in New Orleans in 1972. Although it is just one small example of how Grandmom is unbelievable in many ways I really get a kick out of the story becuase in 1972 she also became a grandmother - I don't think there are any other grandmothers out there that have the same claim to fame. Here's the story, it is all true:

Happy Happy Birthday Grandmom! We love you!
