Robert was 100 years old yesterday and we went to his birthday party. It was a large crowd with family, old friends and neighbors. He is my sister-in-law's father. My brother and she have been married for 50 years so I have known Robert and the family for that long also.
It is an old four square style house but has a two story addition to the front to give the house two extra rooms. Robert is still living there by himself with hospice care twice a day and a daughter that lives in Indianola. The grandkids decorated the place with lots of pumpkins and mums placed all around the property.
The photo tacked to a decorated area shows the three children and Robert with his parents. I am assuming Robert's wife took the photo so she is not in the picture. The girl on the left is my sister-in-law. The taller guy, her brother lives in Alaska, and younger sister is in Indianola.
Mondays are slow in starting as we get back to the weekly routine. I know it is coming but my body tells me we didn't get much rest after two adventurous days. We are hot and humid today and it is cloudy. We will be hot most of the week as we react to the weather of the past few weeks along the easter shoreline. Thank you for stopping by today.
