My Mom’s 83rd Birthday

Grandma's BirthdayToday, my mom turns 83. She’s still in her own apartment, with her dog, Pepper. She walks him twice a day. She has a variety of friends at her “Over 55” apartment complex – primarily other dog owners. They stick together!

On Friday, they had the monthly July Birthdays Party in the activity center, across the yard from her apartment. She loved the applause the birthday people get from the other residents.

Then today, we brought her back to the house with Pepper. After everyone trickled in, we opened presents (flowers and hand warmers*) and went to eat steak at Saltgrass. We came back and watched Red. ย Michael and Katie both called her to wish her Happy Birthday.

Birthday cake afterwards and back to her apartment so she can watch one of her favorite shows, The Good Wife.

I think she had a fun birthday – at least that’s what she told me.

Grandma wants more frosting, please!
