Our wedding day - that is not my hair but a big feathered hat! My Ray and I were married in 1949 and we had 48 years together and two wonderful kids.
My parents, sister, brother and I sometime in the 1960's. We had made a couple of moves away from Chillicothe by then.
Ray, Hannah and me. That was taken 16 years ago yesterday. How blessed am I. I also am so thankful I have this wonderful pasttime, addiction, passion, whatever you call it, for quilting. It does not lessen as I get older. I love the girls I have met through quilting and get to spend time with even though they are all much younger than I. I am sure that helps me keep from growing old faster. They refuse to let me play the "old lady card"! And I so love blogging and the internet. How fun to have lived long enough to see all that has happened in technology in the last 20 years. How much has come, become outdated and gone, to be replaced by something else wonderful. Now I have a cellphone and am taking up texting. That is turning into a whole lot of fun, too. I cannot even begin to imagine how it will be when my great grandchildren are my age! A few posts back, there is a picture of part of my family up north at Sherry and Barc's cabin if you would like to see a really recent photo. Bill and Ann weren't able to be there, but they are coming here tomorrow. I will be so glad to see them again. My kids, their spouses and I will have a birthday dinner tomorrow night.
So, looking back over my 85 years, I am very content with what I see and consider myself a very fortunate woman. This is a very happy birthday.
