Best Supporting Actresses...

 Vancouver friends Colleen, Peggy, Dee, Me, Lisa, Heather, Gwen and their Oscar
on the beach celebrating my BIG birthday last weekend at Tigh-na-Mara Spa.
I'd like to thank my mother and my father and my sisters and my brother and my unborn children and my none existent husbands and my former psychiatrist but most of all I'd like to thank my brilliant women friends who have been there for me through thick and thin. Who have made me laugh until my stomach hurt.

You have listened. Been generous beyond belief. Always make me feel like I'm a better person than I really am. Exposed me to things I would have never been exposed to on my own.(ugh):-) It's not like that! Honest!
They've helped me when I needed a hand. Took me places even when I was depressed and no fun just to get me out of the apartment way back.  Brought me into the fold of their own family.  Helped me feel joyous. Brought me back to myself. Refrained from saying, You do realize you're insane right? Who are fun to be around. Bursting with integrity. For endless telephone conversations. For well-placed generosity. And just for being there. You're the best! 

Oh, and most of the time they're not even acting. There is no script. There is no set. Although I can be bossy so sometimes I act like the director. But, like most actresses, they just smile, and go about doing what they were going to do anyway...

Does that mean that I can say the actress thing and claim that the camera added 10 (maybe even 50) lbs to my image?

Great Idea Gwen. I think I'll do the same.
