July 4th Celebration

Good to be alive at sixty-five.

Happy Medicare card to me.  I can get that free bus pass now.

My sister and I are in Columbus OH on the big birthday eve after our family gatherings and driving over 1700 miles.

Laura and James hosting a July 4th birthday celebration for me tomorrow.

Here’s a photo collage with some of my favorite things- my family, pignoli, fireworks, coffee ice cream, raspberries, Zeke’s coffee, reading books,  teapots, knitting and sock monkeys. Oh yes, a few shots of me throughout the years.
