What the Big Nine Oh Feels Like.

My friends did me proud with a birthday luncheon, flowers, and a
lot of presents. Then Ted took me out to eat yesterday and for some reason every time we eat at Cheddars, the food is so good that it puts us in stuffed alligator mode and we have to have a nap. My kids also sent flowers and my daughter ordered a long black and white linen cardigan from Talbot's petite. I can't wait to get it.

One of my gifts was an activity tracker and I can't wait to get started on it. I was walking two miles every day several years ago and I need to start again.

Jose sort of hinders me because his little legs are only about two and a half inches long and he can't go fast or far. Also he is a
couch potato and quite portly so that hinders our progress. He dilly dallies around searching for messages from his dog friends,
Yesterday he made a near fatal dash across the street to scare a little white chihuahua. Ted took him out without a leash and we
will certainly not do that again.

My beloved grand daughter is coming home for a week from NYC on Sunday for a short stay. I think she has become a New Yorker for good now.

We are about to blow away today. I wanted to work in the yard but it is pretty nasty out there.

What part of Queens does Laura live in? When I married Ed, we lived in Forest Hills, and we had our wedding reception in Elmhurst at an elegant German restaurant, now closed. Everything changes.

I will ask Laura for her address. This is the nicest apartment she has had. She is happy and not a bit discouraged by her sporadic work in her
field. She told us that everyone who works in fashion has
to have two jobs.

I had no IDEA it was your birthday! Happy Birthday (belated). If you didn't say "big nine oh" noone would know. You're wearing it well and with dignity! Doing it up in style!

The post below this one says "happy birthday Jeri", and fb tells most of us. No need to toot your, well maybe not toot, what is the right term for living longer than Martin?

It never occured to me that I would live this long. My sister is 85 and our grandmother lived until she was 93.

How nice you had a lovely party ... Also happy to hear Laurie is enjoying New York. Would love to hear more about her.

Laura has a room mate and a rather nice apartment in Queens. She has had several opportunities to dress the casts in movies and plays and bar tends in between jobs in fashion. I can't wait to see has been a year since she has been home.

I've always admired how you get out and do stuff. Bless your heart, you're such a good role model.

I really should volunteer at the food bank. It is one of my favorite
causes but Ted gets in a snit when I am gone too much.

Glad that you had a good birthday there.
Sounds like your going to be busy.
Welcome to the big 90

Aha, but you are not far behind me, dear Fredo.

I’m envious of your NY’er granddaughter. I wish I had done that when I was young!
Happiest birthday wishes, I’m glad you had a fabulous day!!!

Thank you for the good wishes! It worried us when Laura left the nest
but she is so independent and gained her knowledge of the city easily.
Her first room mates were guys and ate her food and drank her wine so
she was quick to get out of that situation.

I did that when I was young. I loved every minute. Down in Florida now, but miss New York and its energy.
