Tomorrow Richard and I are going to Ottawa to take my Aunt Sylvia out for her 89th birthday. She laughed on the phone, saying that everyone was making a such fuss about her birthday...and she was only 89!
The big milestone of turning 80 was celebrated recently by my ex-boyfriend's father, Jim. The celebration was held at my house and we brought in the birthday boy's big day with a wonderful supper and party of roughly 40 party-goers. Since Jim is a retired farmer, the cake was a natural. (Chocolate oreo crumbs doubled for earth.)
