Our friend turned 50 today.

By way of marking this milestone, we received a request for wine bottles, used brassieres and assistance in festooning her house.

44DD. I checked.
Believe it or not, there are people in this world who actually own a plastic bin filled with bras JUST IN CASE.

Festooning emergencies break out all the time, apparently.

Who knew?

This is the person well-connected in ladies' lingerie who also doubled as the bratender bartender.

Toasted and fortified, we went to work with lingerie, clothesline, bottles, window markers, illuminated signs and more lingerie.

Did I mention there were spotlights?

The sign says: We Are Giving Her Our Support.

Ten people can create a lot of latex havoc in an hour. You should see where those bras landed in the tree next to their house.

However, we misjudged the time and our friend came back home just as we were exiting stage left and right.

Once past 50, it's just not as easy being stealthy.

Happy Birthday, Dee Dee. Hope it was as memorable for you as it was for us.

What a thing to do!....and we're all getting a little less 'stealthy'!

Thank God I live 1000 miles away and you were too young to buy wine when I turned 50!

That is hilarious!
I have a friend who just turned 50 and this would have been perfect for her!
