2008: Cindy Ayres
Event: 64th Birthday ~ Persona: Magic Eight Squared Ball
The Magic Eight Ball is a toy used for fortune telling. You ask it a question, roll it over a few times and the answer appears. This year, Cindy Ayres turned 64, which is of course eight squared. The shotput was presented to Cindy on the occasion of her 64th birthday at the Thorndike Club, Jaffrey, NH in August. (Lazy webmaster took until October to get it online.... sheesh).
Below you see a bunch of songsters singing a special rendition of "When I'm Sixty Four" (words below). Alice and Triften transformed the shotput and ably presented it. When the magic eight squared ball was asked, "Will Cindy ever give it to any one else?", it replied "Perhaps". ... and a great time was had by all!
"When I'm Sixty Four" For Cindy's Birthday
Now that you're older, and turning gray
Turn up your hearing aid
Listen... to what we have to say to you
Here's a song that we all made
It's for your birthday, we know you forgot
We wish you many more
You're getting older, you're getting bolder
You are sixty four.
We are older too
But we are quick to add
Not as old as you.
In sixty four years, you have done many things
And many stories told
You've travelled near and far, you have a lot to say
You make the most of life as they say
Come every season, you whistle a tune
Winter Spring Summer and Fall
But there's one thing you covet, we know you will love it
Cindy, have the ball!
