Today is Lori's birthday. Happy Birthday to You!! We had a nice celebratory dinner last Friday night to honor her and two other "birthday boys" in the family. I baked a homemade cake for everyone to share:
And here's the birthday girl (center) flanked by her Gold Country Sisters:
It's also Cristina Ferrare's (60th) birthday today. She is yet another one of the gorgeous models that I loved looking at in the magazines in the 60's and 70's - and I love her still! I was delighted to see her on Oprah's show again last week. I have always enjoyed her on television, and I wish she were on more often! I used to watch a program called "Home and Family", which she co-hosted. Here she is in a picture from Life Magazine, circa 1968:
And here, in a Virginia Slims advertisement. You've come a long way, baby:
And, from 1970, in an ad for Max Factor:
I have always found her personality to be completely delightful. I feel like she could be my friend. Here's hoping we will see more of you, Cristina! You are still just as beautiful as ever.
And happy birthday!
