Today is Memère’s 99th birthday.
The whole fam damily is getting together in Sudbury this weekend to celebrate.
The Gods willing, we’ll celebrate her 100th birthday next year.
Although she’s not really getting around much, she does get dressed up every day and sits in her chair and watches a little t.v.
She has her hair and nails done every week.
She looks absolutely amazing.
She has visitors every day and insists on playing cards.
We know she's still with it because if it's your turn and you dally,
she'll call you out and tell to hurry up and play.
She takes her cards seriously, this woman, and only plays for money.
Ante may only be a dime, but it's still money.
I overheard The Husband talking to The Boy the other night:
Yeah, we’re going up north for Mo’s grandmother’s 99th birthday.
I know! It’s just fabulous.
Yeah, well, if it does run in the family don’t count on any inheritance.
