90 year olds don't seem as old as they used to.

Two weeks ago, I went to a surprise birthday party. It was for my Dad's g/f 90th birthday. It was really neat. Her oldest son is a tv producer and he ran the show. It was very organized, flashy, attended by a celebrity, and a down right blast. Maxine, my Dad's g/f, looks all of 80. I was blown away by her actually being 90.

Today was my aunt Mary's 90th birthday. Again, a surprise party. Mary's not in as good of health as Max, but her eyes are bright and voice clear. I hadn't seen her in awhile and wondered if she would recognize me. Since the last time I saw her, my hair has grown and I've got a beard. As soon as she got seated, she saw me, her eyes lit up, and she waved me over. It was great. She is my Mom's last living sibling. (My Mom passed in 1992). The cool thing though, was her youngest kid was there. He is a couple years older than me, and a few years back he was in the hospital in a coma and the docs told his wife to "call the family to say their goodbyes". I went to visit him in the hospital and left in tears. Then, against all odds, he got better. They have no idea how he recovered. He says it was from prayer and I won't argue. All I know is he's here and I got to hang with him a bit today. Good times.

In June, my Dad turns 90. A surprise party is being planned. While I am dubious about the wisdom of surprise parties for 90 year olds, I do think it will be fun. Plus, my g/f is not only a nurse, but was a cardiac care nurse for 30 years. We should be covered.
