Parties Galore....

This is a summer to remember...on the weekend that I flew to Minnesota, my Aunt Cile also celebrated her 90th birthday in San Antonio.  If I could have split myself in two that weekend I surely would have.   Cousin Cherie sent me a picture of the celebration and I have tried to copy the picture into the blog with no luck.  But Wow!  It shows Aunt Cile and Uncle Merrill along with 10 cousins and their respective spouses.  I would have loved to be there.  Aunt Cile, I promise to make your next party.  And Happy 90th Birthday.

And that's not all!  Next weekend is cousin, Jo Beverly Lambert-Eddins, 90th birthday in Shreveport and I am going to drive over there for that celebration (if all goes well).  It is a 5 or 6 hour drive and I plan to be gone only a few days.  Sister Mary (from Hawaii) is flying here this weekend and will be with Aunt Louise while I am gone--although Aunt Louise is doing very well on her own. (These 90-year-olds are such party animals they are wearing me out.)

And finally, an update on Aunt Louise:  The therapist has taken her off pureed foods and we went to the dining room for dinner tonight.  It was just great for her to have a real meal for a change.  She is settling into the apartment and has had a few visitors so life is good.

Stay tuned.


  1. PHew! I can't keep up with you! Glad Mary will be out there soon.

  2. Hattie, you rival me in galavanting. Actually, you outdo me....Alaska, Peru, Sweden. BTW, today I am in Louisiana and Mary is with Aunt Louise.
