What a lovely couple and such a long time to remain married in todays world.
That picture of Betty and Larry was sad, knowing what happened weeks later.
Love your suprise bags. Such fun.
You do throw the best parties.
I guess back in the day "producing" a play really meant producing.
The test of true friendship is never running out of things to discuss/laugh about/cry over. Those are the people are very, very valuable.
You all sure know how to play ...and eat! My birthday is coming up and I'm already thinking about my chef made carrot cake.
I'd love to see more old photos.
Naomi, your ladies lunch are always wonderful!
Congratulations again to the lovely couple Dianne and Mark.
Sure, 35 years is a true milestone!
Lemon Meringue and Chocolate Cake looks delicious. The Gift Bags are always an amazing surprise.
Really I would love to be there with you!
Have a nice week ahead.
That lemon meringue cake looks fabulous! I love the contrast between lemon and chocolate.
Thanks for more pictures.
Again, a wonderful (double!) celebration and happy shots, love them!

I've dreamed about that lemon cake. Holy cow, it is good!
I love that you let us peek in the goody bags!
Just delightful. Friends are the best. Tom is a wonderful person and so talented. I'm glad he loves Seattle---we have great theatre here. I swear you ladies look younger each lunch. Oh, the slides, we have so many..darn technology.
Naomi, I love your stories... You and the ladies are lucky to get together so much and just have fun together.... Keep it up.
I want to attend one of your lunches...just so I can eat chocolate cake and have fun with my goodie bag! :) I love the bracelet and all the toys...and lipgloss...wow! How Vogue! ;)
I didn't realize you ladies went that far back...to the 60s and 70s! Amazing, and even more amazing is that you've all remained such good friends! You are all an inspiration! I should link you to my latest post!! :)
OK, I confess - since we spell our names the same way I made believe Dianne's gift bag was really for me ;)
some people have lunch, some people do lunch
and then you - you celebrate lunch!
I love the photos
it's wonderful to see Lee and Betty - women I have admired and been impressed with on TV or in movies - in a casual and personal setting
makes me feel a wee bit famous :)
wonderful wonderful parts 1 and 2
Happy Birthday Dianne
Happy Anniversary Dianne and Mark
The Lemon Meringue is my first choice as well.
The photos of the two beeing married for 35 years is fascinating. They looks so young when they are blowing out the candle.
By the way, I found: How to blow out candles step by step (funny i think): http://www.wikihow.com/Blow-Out-Candles
Do you know why we blow out the Birthday candles?
"We blow candles every year when we celebrate our birthday. When we blow out our candles we are following actually a tradition or custom created by the ancient Greeks. In the Greek tradition on the sixth day of every month, the birthday of Goddess of the hunt is celebrated. The ancient Greek in her honour made a honey cake which is topped with burning candles. As they blow out each candle, the people make a wish from Goddess for a present. In the same way as we blow each candle on our birthday it means that we believed that all of our wishes will be granted".
So, this is without doubt a very old tradtion.
I'll stay tuned for the end of this wonderful event.
btw. Thanks for your nice comments when I've been more or less absent from blogging.
Naomi those Ladies Who Lunch are great memories.. I love hearing about them.. Thanks for sharing and I had tears in my eyes this time around. Realizing my hubby and I have been together 14 years in June and married 4 June 2nd.. Amazing huh??LOL..

It must be great to have such a lovely double celebration with friends with whom you have a shared history. And two luscious cakes - Heaven!
Those cakes look delicious, especially the chocolate. You know how I am about chocolate!
The company looks divine... friends usually are. :)
What a lovely couple, and I'm sure they had a great time visiting with everyone and enjoying those delicious cakes!! I would love to "taste test" both of them!!! (the cakes I mean!) :)
