Special birthdays celebrated on 8-8-08

A Mid-South woman celebrated a special and unique birthday Friday, turning 88-years-old on 08-08-08.

Action News 5 caught up with Dorothy Rast Holley - born in 1920 - during her birthday party Friday afternoon.

All those crazy eights surrounding her birthday were no big deal to a woman who has seen it all.

"It's just another day," she said. "Just another year. I'm just real pleased that I've lived this long."

At least two other people around the Mid-South also turned 88 on August 8th, 2008.

Leon Gordon of Southaven turned 99, as well as another man in Memphis who blew out his candles Friday.

We wanted to catch up with them, too, but as fate would have it, Father Time caught up with us and we couldn't get there.

Regardless, Happy 88th birthday!
