Ninety One! How Did I Ever Get This Old?

I could not envision this vast age when I was younger. I have been through the depression, world war II, four marriages and three divorces,the acquisition of a bachelors degree and an M.S. at the age of forty and now in this time of the virus am keeping up with both real and virtual friends through the computer. Please know, my virtual friends that I have never met that I love and value you all. The ones I was privileged to get to know, Laura and Fredo and Mike are especially dear to me. You have all enriched my life. My daughter and my husband have made wonderful birthday offers, but I have reached the stage where I want nothing but safety for friends and loved ones. The loss of my son was devastating. I can only hope my daughter and her family will stay safe and my sister and niece and nephews do the same. Meanwhile, the birds are singing and building nests, the hydrangeas are coming up and it looks like spring outside. I plan to enjoy the day.

Always eager to share memories that elude those not old enough to have been there. Yes, FDR was phenomenal and I cried for weeks when he died. Wish I could travel and meet my blog friends, but it doesn't seem possible and particularly not now. Who knows where this will all go. Happiest of birthdays dear Jeri. Enjoy family time. Love, T

Thank you. My grandaughter in NYC called. She is sheltering in place, filed for unemployment over the phone and cooking all the food for herself and her room mate. They have two kitties and walk in the park for recreation. It was so good to know she is being careful.

Happy birthday, your being online makes it much nicer and pleasanter. I had this fleeting thought before falling asleep this afternoon (something I'm doing a lot more of now) that I really should try to enjoy at least something each day now, no matter what the news says.

Yes, the news is dismal but there are ice cream sundaes and sunshine and the birds. I heard from my sweetest grand daughter in NYC and she is doing well. Thanks to New York's governor she is not worried about money
and she is self isolating with her room mate and their cats.

We had so many cookies Christmas that I froze all the sugar cookies. They are just as good today as they were in December. And needed with our coffee.

I hope we never have the soul destroying poverty that the depression forced on us. FDR saved us. I had to stay out of school at seven to baby sit my two year old sister while my parents picked cotton. The rural poor had it so rough. However, I see it coming again, sorry to say. Love you sweetie.

You are my inspiration! I try to learn from you and the other greasy geezer. There seems to be a few characteristics that youz have in common. So I enjoy every day and move forward as if there is no limit to my time. Thanks, and have a great day!

Happy happy birthday!!!! 🎈🎂
I hope you enjoy to the best of your ability. Also, do you think we will be living through a second depression?
