Merle's 78th Birthday. Take 2.

Post 783 ~ ~ Sunday, 26th May, 2012.
I had a good post on but lost it so have just put the photos back on. Left, is Jacqui, Peter, Vicki, Merle and Kathy.
Below Peter and Merle.

Second row ia Merle with her daughter Kathy, who is mother to these beautiful grandkids, Kristen and Kate,
Then Jorja 14, Nick 17, with their Mum and me.

Bottom row was at the hotel ~~ Left Shirley, Frank, John, Merle, Vicki, Jacqui Keith.
Second one is much the same but with Peter and Marcus in it.

I owe a big Thank You to my brother who organized the lunch at the hotel and paid for it, He got some old
friends to come as well as family. I enjoyed every minute of it, and then we had other cousins come at night
for another meal. I was ordered to sit down which I could get to like. Peter's daughter, Vicki and my Kathy
got another meal for 9 or so of us. Kids washed the dishes afterwards. Jorja and Nick next day.

I have a house full of flowers and have run out of vases. Lots of lovely liliums, iris and daisy and chrysanthemums. Some lovely eucalypt leaves around 2 lots. I don't have much sense of smell, but I tore
a leaf and rubbbed it and got a small whiff of gum.

I can't remember what I typed last night, but plan to save this in drafts and finish it tomorrow. So sleep tight
my friends. I hope you have been having as much fun as I have. Bye for now. Merle.

Maybe I had better publish this so they don't lost it again. I will write more tomorrow and find some jokes.
A Big Happy 76th birthday to my little brother who has been such a help to me. He even washed dishes.

So glad you posted pictures of your birthday celebration. It looks like a wonderful group and I know you enjoyed every minute of it. What a good brother you have.

You have a beautiful family, Merle. Even the guys are a handsome bunch.

I knew you wouldn't be just you and Peter and your niece.

One last question, Merle, DO YOU FEEL OLD NOW THAT YOU ARE 78?
I for sure did feel old that I didn't at 77. :)
