September 9 has been a momentous occasion in my family for two centuries - actually, two millennia. It is my grandmother's birthday. She would have been 108 had she not died 10 years ago today.
I spent her last birthday with her. Nana had broken her hip several days before so we celebrated in the hospital. Talk about a party to end all parties! She was in good spirits when I was with her and died later that night in her sleep.
NOTE: Older souls must be careful; their bones are brittle and broken bones can be deadly. Fortunately, there are many books and online resources for strengthening skeletons at every age.
On a lighter note, today's Bonza Bottler Day. May yours be bodacious! ###
