Mum Turns 91

Happy Birthday, Mother.

She's going strong.  It's the Norwegian blood ever at slight odds with the Swedish blood that keeps things moving and provides the fuel for her life.  A cane or walker mixed in may slow her down, but she is no less determined to get things done.

So today, we are flying up to Spokane to celebrate her day.  Perhaps the best of all the Things I get to do today is give her a birthday hug.

  1. Happy birthday to your mum. I have two friends' mothers turning 95 this week. More power to them all.

    1. Several friends and nephews joined us. The sun shown. The birds sang. The potato salad was magnificent. She had a good time.
