...as my youngest sister celebrates a milestone birthday. Brother-in-law Jim doesn't need much of an excuse to put on a big fireworks display...and a 50th birthday is as good a reason as any!
Since we knew we would miss out on the Manitoba festivities...and since Kathy was in BC in July...we began the celebrations a tad early with a backyard surprise party. We know that she will be well prepared for any outings today...she has the pre-requisite red hat and a purple scarf to ward off that nippy prairie chill. And...in case Jim forgets to bring flowers...I'm quite sure that those lovely red roses will still be OK! Have a wonderful birthday...and be sure to milk this one for all it is worth. Fifty years is something worth celebrating!
On the day that Kathy was born...my dad was having a birthday party of his own. He turned thirty-seven way back then...and is celebrating his eighty-seventh birthday today. We had a bit of a party for him on the weekend...and he was at his story-telling best!
To all of you who were born on September fourteen...
