SIXTY! And now truth needs to be told...I was 60 in June 2007 and Ken was 60 in January 2008 and we just got around to having this party that we have been talking about for a year. Hey, we're SIXTY. What's a few months?

The Program: Electric Slide, Salsa, Argentine Tango, Hustle, the big closer-YMCA, and plenty in between. And all that was pretty good, once it showed up. We also had a really handsome no-host buy-your-own bar.

Extra thanks go out to Bill Roberts and to Darryl, Angela, and Cynthia Kanouse for the photos that follow.

Here we are, Pen 'n Ken, ready to Par-Teee.
