My mother turns 98 today.
We're having her for dinner and I asked if it was OK to have a small group. Or did she want more people?
"A small group is fine. But I want a lot of people two years from now."
She has great spirit. Is active. Pretty healthy as far as we can tell. Lousy short-term memory but extraordinary recall for what happened, say, 90 years ago.
She's a lovely lady who sees the best in people. I wouldn't bet against her making it to that centennial she has in mind.
Dear Old Mum. Happy Birthday, Dorothy. We love you.
