HAPPY BIRTHDAY CAT59!!

Cat59 and I met in 1984 working at a high-powered DC lobbying and PR firm. I've known her the longest of any friend from the DC area. We were both young, in our mid-twenties and trying to figure out our lives.


This photo was taking in 1986 at the Hands Across America event near the Washington Monument. Cat59 is the long-legged gal in the white jeans. (I was taking the photo.)

We've been together through good times and bad, boyfriend breakups, deaths of friends and family, and her marriage to wonderful Dave. They've moved around from Maryland to Pennsylvania. To Georgia, and now in North Carolina.

She was always the serious one...............;-)


This photo was also taken in 1986. Say, are those pantyhose on your head!?!

Have a great day!!

Love, Possumlady and the Herd

Happy Birthday, Cathie! The two of you together would be enough to charge admission? LOL! Have a grand day.

Possumlady, you are a good friend, as CAT59 will agree.

Hi Mary. Thanks for the B-day wish. Possumlady is a good friend, and after 23 years, it looks like the friendship will last!

Yes, we do have quite a few stories to tell! We had some wild nights. But I also remember the silly Friday nights getting together to watch Dallas, with a roll of cookie dough and a tub of frosting!! Good times....good times.

Oh, yes. Good times and wild nights to remember. Good friends :o) We all need them.
