Happy 81st birthday Ray!


[Photo by @zmack]

There was a bit of a celebration last night at Ray's Candy Store... as the proprietor celebrated his 81st birthday... And, as usual, someone sprung for some entertainment... We have more photos, though, someone has to think about the children. So we will post the rest of the adult contemporary shots for them later.

Happy birthday Ray!

Ray gets more strippers every year. I wish I could have been there. The last time I was in the neighborhood I was on the street and Ray let me sleep in his basement. Please peeps remember Bob Arihood on Ray's birthday as well because without Bob's help Ray would no longer have his store. Love Ya Ray and happy Birthday once again.

John, the photo of Bob was placed carefully facing outward so he could enjoy the show with the rest of us.

He is sorely missed.

This was, without a doubt, one of the greatest things I've been able to take part in in this neighborhood. Such a great time for everyone! HAPPY 81ST, RAY!

I had no idea this happened. I'm there every weekend getting vanilla ice cream with rainbow sprinkles from our boy Ray.
Need to make sure to step it up next year and but that man a lap dance at his party.
