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.
