Friends you can count on

I got treated last week to a surprise birthday party, orchestrated by my sweetie. She called on these people to help:

Jeff Johnson Tim Freeland Doug Bratland Bridgette Hallcock
L to R: Jeff Johnson, KYMN, emceed the roast; Tim Freeland, KYMN, took the video; Doug Bratland took 24 photos at the start of the party and blogged them within an hour on Northfield.org; and Bridgette Hallcock, DJJD photographer who took over 300 photos throughout the evening (including the above ones of Jeff, Tim and Doug). I’ve put up a party photo album of 100 of Bridgett’s photos here.

Bridgette Hallcock Photography, Castle Rock, MN 507-271-3262 Bridgett’s the best special event photographer around, IMHO. Her card says: "Bridgette Hallcock Photography, Castle Rock, Specializing in outdoor photography of seniors, families, and special events. 507-271-3262."

Update 10/3: Robbie was horrified when she saw this blog post because I didn’t include two people who worked behind the scenes with her prior to the event:

Jessica Paxton Tracy Davis
Jessica Paxton and Tracy Davis. Thanks, ladies!

  1. Robbie was horrified when she saw this blog post because I didn’t include two people who worked behind the scenes with her prior to the event: Jessica Paxton and Tracy Davis. Thanks, ladies! I’ve added their photos to the blog post above.

  2. How could I miss out on such an opportunity to dishonor the Griffster?

    Actually I was sick the night of the actual event, so I’m glad to have the stunning photographic record. It looks like everyone was having a wonderful time, including the guest of honor.

  3. Nice shot of my chipmunk-like, post-surgery jaw…only a tribute to Griff could get me outta the house 48 hours after being butchered by the dentist! Thanks for the thanks, Griff and Robbie. It was a treat and an honor to be in on the “secret.”
