Today is my mom's birthday ... She is 88 years old. I can remember when she would say, "I hope I live to see the year 2000!" ...she turned 80 that year. We had a big party for her in the community room of her highrise. That was before we had a digital camera, and I can't find those pics, so here are some from more recent birthdays...her 86th and 87th. I just called her about an hour ago. She received our cards and packages, so said she feels like she's had a birthday now. But, (and I predicted this) said the dishcloths and notecards we sent were too pretty to use. She is having dinner tonight at the RSVP Banquet. I believe that stands for Retired Senior Volunteer Program. They recognize all the folks for their hours of volunteer work. My mom is going because she spends time visiting the elderly. (ok, mom is 88...what is elderly? that's people in their 90's)
She said she got a card from her baby brother, Milford (he's 79) and he reminded her that their mom died at 87, so my mom is the longest living female in the family...I hope I inherited those genes...
