Daughter-in-law Laurie, greeting guests coming to my 75th birthday party. At some point, I think maybe birthdays should be forgotten, but 75 is a milestone of sorts.
My son Ken meets and greets our old friends and relatives.
And then for awhile there was a whole lot of huggin' goin' on..
The littlest cousin and the biggest cousin.
Since this was an Oktoberfest birthday combo, Laurie got me into a hat.We all adore Abbie and especially like to try on her hair. She let me borrow it for a few seconds so I could feel young again.
The wine flowed-

Ninety year old Bill Foster told everyone that he asked the man upstairs to take a couple strokes off his golf game, but he misunderstood and gave him a stroke instead. A lesson in never losing your sense of humor. His wife June is 88 but looks 65.
My favorite and long time quilting buddy, Kendra.
I think brother Stew is trying to convince brother Mason to grow a mustache.
Long time friend, Paul Moller from Calaveras Community TV.
Jim borrowed Abbie's hair for a mustache-
-but, then she put him through all of the props.
Then they put me on the hot seat. I said no gifts.
Mostly jokes, lovely cards and fun.
