Do you remember that there was a lady of similar age who used to go for a sausage sandwich with Fred?

Well, our Glad turned ninety-nine today.

I hope Glad has had a great birthday.
Maybe even a sausage sandwich was included.

No blood relative has yet made 100 as far as I know, but my brother-in-law's mother is still chirpy and 'with it'at 101.
My oldest blood relation is heading for 98 and still has her old wacky sense of humour, when I phone her, so she too is doing great.

My great great grandmother made it to 100, and my eldest aunt had her 99th birthday recently. Her two younger sisters are both in their 90s.

My uncle made it to 100 in 2015 but sadly died 6 months later. He's the only one in my family to get a card from the Queen and it really made his day. A lovely, gentle, old-fashioned gentleman.

R.I.P. Uncle Vic.

Happy Birthday Glad.

Happy Birthday, Glad, haven't you done well? Many happy returns of the day

Happy birthday, to Glad, is she the oldest person in the village?


Sharron Report 10 Jul 2019 18:54

She is indeed. Fred never made that.

Fred was the person who had lived longest in the village and that is now Glad.

Is she still going out for sausage sarnies???


Sharron Report 10 Jul 2019 21:26

She is certainly still going out but the bus service has been withdrawn so I am not sure where she goes now.


SylviaInCanada Report 11 Jul 2019 00:02

what a pity there is now no bus service!
