This Old Bat





Recently I had another birthday so I guess maybe I should change my post title to something like THIS Old CROAN or Old? Me. My youngest son, Jordan and his wife, Lori, hosted the event. Julie came all the way from Texas and Jim, son no. 2, was there as well. Of course we cannot forget to name the biggest attraction--Miranda who just turned 3. I call her Matilda. She likes it. She is a very active child. If only she didn't have such hard knees and elbows when she climbs on to you not caring where she plants them! But as you can imagine, I love to have her come to me so I endure the torture gladly.


While in Texas for Thanksgiving, Jacob, my recently married grandson, and I went swimming. It wasn't too cold but the Texans hadn't been in the water for weeks. The wimps!

And I end this family type epistle with a picture of me with my Texas grandchildren. We gained another girl when Jacob married Chelsea.


Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving and now on to Christmas. I always loved Christmas but I must confess I heaved a sigh of relief when Christmas dinner was over, thanking God that I wouldn't have to do it again until next year.

Bernie...I do believe you look younger lately...it must be hanging around with those good looking young Texas grandsons...or getting in that cold water! You do look great!

Glad you had a nice birthday!

I believe that age is one's attitude and you, my dear, are not old judging by what I read here. I can only wish I'll be as lively when I am at your physical age. Lovely pictures, too.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!

I have to agree with Zella, I hope I look half as good as you when I get there! Your picture with your grandsons reminds me of my grandma and the four of us grandsons. We were all a good head taller than she was but we always looked up to her!

Have fun getting ready for Christmas!

Happy Birthday! I loved seeing these pictures. You look happy, and I agree with Wanda, younger. You are my inspiration for what I have to look forward to. No need to change your blog name - it fits your spirit perfectly. :-)

I'm so glad I stumbled upon your funny, wise blog! You speak for many
of us older women-had to laugh out loud about the boney knees and elbows of small children!
