Happy 90th birthday

My Mom comes from a family of girls – well not all girls – there is one brother, but when there are five sisters it seems like it is a family of girls. I grew up with my grandmother and aunts! Along the way, uncles joined the family – John, Don, Richard, Ray, I watched them build and repair around the cottage, join us for family occasions like Christmas. They were all so very different from one another. But I always enjoyed their being around.

The eldest of my aunts is Eileen – though I grew up knowing her as Bubs. She has now had her 90th birthday and below she is pictured with my Mom and Aunt Freda. She’s also in the B&W photo with my grandmother and all the sisters. She’s the tallest with the big fluffy hat. She was always one to dress (and drive) with style.  I remember her red Impala convertible – with white leather interior. The next car (a couple of years later) it was a white Impala convertible with a red leather interior!

So now she’s 90 years of age and still living on her own. Happy birthday Bubs!
