My Mom's 75th Birthday Party

January 29th was my mom's 75th birthday. We had a small party at the Country Club. It was a fantastic party for an amazing lady! A picture of Mom when she was younger and the delicious cake. My dad told the story that when he took this picture in to be framed the man in the frame shop said, "Who is that movie star?" My dad said, "It's no movie star, it's the girl I'm going to marry." The man laughed and said, "Yeah, right!" Poor dad!! But lucky Dad, especially since he has been able to spend almost 57 years with that beautiful girl!
