Barbara, hard to believe we are so close to 80. However, is 80 the new 50? Hope all is well with you, Wayne and kids now adults. Grandkids? God bless and love.

Nancy, thank you for being so thoughtful and smart to post to the newspaper so that her children and family would have that connection of those who knew her as a young person. Great way of connecting since we'd have no info on their addresses/whereabouts. Iwould never have thought of it, and appreciate being given the idea to do this in the future. Barb

Always wished Sue had been at our recent reunions.  Getting to spend time with such a wonderful group of "older" women is a gift and I would have appreciated knowing Sue at this time of life.  Like Sue, all that bridge playing in the lounge has served me well in my aging years.  RIP.

Yowaza! Yowaza... the celebrations might be loud and rowdy, shaking the rafters, or sophisticated, dignified candelabras sparkling in glittery candlelight and/or some each of everything YOU enjoy. Most of all, have a happy birthday full of love and respect for all you’ve accomplished!

Don't know if you read these but hope so. Well, it will shortly be only 25 more till we are a century old. WHEW! It's been a crazy summer weather-wise. Hope you have kept cool or warm as need be. Keep wondering if you ever come near to Indy on your way somewhere. I never get to Chicago as we discovered Rte #39 to go to Madison nowadays. May God bless you, Wayne and the kiddies (I mean the grown children.). Any grandchildren?

I wonder how you are doing. I am wishing you an early happy birthday 'cause otherwise I will forget. Hope you aren't getting quite as much rain as we are. We were 8 inches over the norm yesterday and it's pouring today. At least I don't have to water often. My grandchildren are12 and 13. Horrors! They make me remember my age. Love to you and yours.

I am not very good at this, and so may be repeating a message I just sent. Wayne says that book IS hard. I don't read his books but get exposed to him through videos in a women's group. I usually like what he says, but can't say I've gone too deeply into it. Hope all is well. Barb

I did have a happy day; a happy week, actually. I forgot we bought those shot glasses togther. Yes, I use mine every morning and will now think of you too. I do use it for liquor once in a while too. Hope all is well. Thanks for remembering me. Barb

Thanks for being a great "sweet/suite" mate for the reunion. I enjoyed myself and really was glad to see you all. Hope it's not another 50--ha! Happy 72nd and if you're out this way, please stop.
