And there she is second from left (guessing late 1920's early 1930's)...looks like she's been swimming...my Grandfather George of the "George & Fran" love letters sits next to her!


SASSY AUNT DOT'S GARDEN
If you've ever wondered where I get my green thumb from, check out Aunt Dot's garden at her house..yes, she still lives on her own at 99! See why I call her sassy?? Aunt Dot is my idol. If Sassy Aunt Dot can do it at 99, you and I can do it too!

Yeah, I know, she's pretty AMAZING! I wonder what her secret is? I'm gonna guess her perky, positive attitude about life and also her faith. She just keeps on keeping on. Happy Birthday Aunt Dot, I'll see you in Sept...Aunt Dot is hosting the family picnic at her place this year and I look forward to hearing her tell stories!

  13. Aunt Dot, I admire you! I work in a long term care center, so age means nothing to me. I have so many beautiful gals and dapper guys for friends..but the BEST part are the stories! Enjoy while you can Mary D. What a gem! Zootsuitmama
