The Draw

The Half Blind Half Deaf Elderly Mother says many many thanks for all the congratulations.   She had a wonderful birthday and "only sometimes feels like 80 years old"

Yesterday my little sister and her family flew up from Wellington to spend the day with us and celebrate this milestone.   My nephew is a police constable so in the presence of a duly warranted officer of the law the "80 year old birthday celebration giveaway" was drawn.  Little Sister held Grandma's Bowl and The Half Blind Half Deaf Elderly Mother drew a name.

And the lucky winner was ....

Oops can't read that can we...?

Congratulations Staci.   We all hope your mother had a wonderful birthday too.   And a gift package will be on its way to you very soon.    Thank you all for joining in and making this birthday a special one for Mother.

And after all the official business Little Sister sat and read all the comments....   so just so she knows I saw her, here's a snapshot.

Hoping you all have a wonderful weekend.


  1. God bless your mother!!! That's good that she only feels 80 sometimes, because she certainly doesn't look it :)

    Thank you so much Margaret for making my day (and family for making it official!)

  2. Congrats to Staci! I'm glad your mom had a wonderful birthday!

  3. Congratulations to Staci!

    Your Mom looks very happy and sprightly! It looks like she had a wonderful birthday with her family around her to celebrate with her.
