A very happy birthday to you! I would love to hear the stories of being a small child during the depression, transitioning from a teenager to a young woman during WW2 and all the changes you have seen. I used to love to listen to the stories of my Great Grand Parents and Grand Parents. A big smile and hearty happy birthday, I hope this day finds you well!

Oh the sights you have witnessed in 90 years have been amazing. And to now include a BLOG, who would have thought back 50 years ago you would be writing something that was read within minutes by someone 2000 miles or more away.
