Today is my big sister's birthday.
"Happy Birthday to you, happy birthday to you! Happy Birthday, you old Far-Art! Happy Birthday to you!"

I sent her a nice card and gift earlier this week but I have not spoken to her today...however, she knows I love her.

She has been at the hospital today with her hubby who had a bad accident a few weeks ago. He had to have more tests and "icky guy stuff". (According to my Feller, it is God's way of balancing out womens' female miseries....just as most of us gals are settling into "The Change" with some modicum of acceptance, a lot of our men get a big fat prostate and faulty plumbing and all-that-stuff.....I am still waiting on them to pass a cantelope out of their nether regions...and then we will be even)

Anyway, I will talk to her tomorrow and graciously remind her that she is HOW much older than me....and we will laugh cause that is just how we are.

I get to see her in about a week and a half and I.cannot.wait.

Love you, Sissy....truly I do.

Hi there, Nancourt,

Goodness, it's taken me all week to get over here to thank you for your comments on my Holiday Traditions post. I need to slow down!

You're so right. We have a lot in common. For one thing, it's obvious we both love our sisters.

I'm sorry you're so far away from what you're familiar with. Thirteen hours is a long, long drive and no vege tray would survive it, I fear.

I so enjoyed your long comment. I plan to visit you again soon. And a late happy birthday to your sister. Sisters make life so much nicer, don't they?
