Happy Birthday J!!!
Went to the 70th birthday party of our friend and neighbor, J. After a fabulous spread of every sort of sushi and then yummy cupcakes, lots of drink and basking in their wonderfully decorated home with huge numbers of balloons, and a lot of poeple, his wife M surprised him (and everyone else but me who was asked to take photographs) with the appearance of Aunt Betty Malone, a female impersonator, who was fabulously entertaining with songs “I put a spell on you”, the man that got away”, ‘Sugar in my bowl” and Black Coffee”! Had to be blipped! :-) I wasn’t in position to catch the VERY first look on J’s face but this is his sort of stunned participation in the first piece, with wife M grinning on the left… I think "Aunt Betty" is very theatrical and talented actually —it was a great show in an intimate space with lots of smiles and laughter all around.!
Aunt Betty is on a few youtubes but I think what we saw was the best!!!
A few more extras…. one of J and M with Aunt Betty and his partner --one of the first gay couples to be legally married in the state of Washington (J and M were in attendance at the wedding)
And the flickr set some more of the fab entertainment...included.
