"Last week the candle factory burned down. Everyone just stood around and sang Happy Birthday.”… Stephen Wright
It has been a bit of a milestone type of week for several people that are special to us.
First of all a small child was born in New York City..a much awaited first Grandchild to one of my best friends. I told the new Grandma to think positive..Sadie Magnolia doesn’t sound real New Yorkie to me ..so I am sure that she will become a Minnesota gal!! My friend will be 60..and she is just now a Grandma for the first time ..I was a Grandma when I was 45. So she has some serious Grand mothering to do! Since she only birthed male children..this little girl is a very special person that is entering her life. Will Sadie ever know how much she is loved? When she is older..when I meet her I will have to tell her..that her Grandma was pee your pants excited for months before her birth..she ought to remember that!!
Far Guys Auntie Esther was ninety yesterday..we went to town for a gathering of friends and family for cake and coffee. It was a great turn out, after all the golf course is shut down for the winter! Ninety years..not everyone makes it to that milestone! She reads my blog everyday..she is probably my oldest reader! Yes, she is a computer savvy ninety year old! Don’t that beat all! Many people her age wouldn’t even try to navigate around the Internet.. way to go Auntie Esther!
Milestones reached..what are you reaching for? I am reaching for several things..several dates..December 20, December 25, and December 28 ..all milestones for me/us. December 20 will mark forty years of wedded bliss, December 25 marks a two year Trigeminal Neuralgia diagnosis for Far Guy, that was a gift that kept on giving.. (not all milestones are pleasant) ..and December 28..two years of blogging for me:)
