Still celebrating ——

Even though my birthday was the end of March, it seems that the celebrating has continued into this month.   My brother David and his wife Ellen couldn’t be with us for the family celebration Easter weekend, but they did pay a visit last week, following a speaking engagement in Washington, DC,   I took them to see the Silver Arts Exhibit at the Senior Center in Pittsboro, and of course, we had to visit the S & T Soda Shoppe to sample their famous ice cream.IMG_3679  This is a single serving of it.  The shoppe is an old soda shoppe that made us think of our childhood days with the comfortable booths and small round tables and stools at the bar.  A great experience.

Parked outside was this beautiful motorcycle:

Thanks for stopping by and see you again soon.

Birthday Celebration

Last Monday, March 30th, was my 95th birthday!  When I was born in 1920, it was unheard of for someone to reach that age and be in fairly good health.  How thankful I am to the miracles of modern science and medical technology that allow many people to reach that age and beyond. My mixed media group that meet weekly at the Senior Center gave a luncheon in my honor at the home of Mary Ellen Houck. (Thank you, Mary Ellen, for coordinating this get-together!)  Ten of us gathered there with a pot-luck lunch and fellowship.  Here are some pictures of the happy occasion ——— IMG_1308 IMG_1309 IMG_1310 IMG_1311 IMG_1313   Thanks for stopping by today —-and a BLESSED EASTER to all.
