Instead of creating a brand new Follies this week, I
thought I would share with you the invitation I created
for my 50th Birthday Party last weekend.
I made this back during the summer when I was
trying to learn the new PageMaker program. It was
great practice, and I learned a great deal fooling with
it. That is one of the nice things about doing the Fol-
lies every week....it gives me a chance to practice some of
the things I have or am trying to learn. One of these
days, I will send you some of the brochures I have done,
and you will be able to “see” some of the things I used

ardy, or even if they offend you. Please understand
that they are intended to be light-hearted and are not
mean-spirited in any way. If you are ever offended, do
not hesitate to ask to be taken off the Friday list.
PSS. If you send a joke and I don't use it, it is
because it has been used before, and I try not to repeat.
Remember, I have been sending these since August of
1997. You tend to go through huge numbers of jokes that way.
Disclaimer: When anyone asks if I type all of these jokes, the
answer is, "No!" I cut and paste one evening during the week (30
minutes, TOPS). I don't have t
