Gaines feted with birthday celebration
Family members and friends gathered at the Peabody home of J.D. Gaines to celebrate his birthday Oct 14.
A thunderstorm and power outage failed to douse the party, which went ahead with a bonfire, generator, gas camping stove, and other quick fixes.
Nephew Herb Gaines supplied red-handled wiener-roasting forks that had been used at a prior birthday for J.D.
Those attending included his three children and their spouses, five grandchildren, his sister and sister-in-law, and nieces, nephews, and friends.
