Today is my oldest son's birthday. We celebrated by going out to eat. I can't believe that he has gotten so OLD! I must have given birth to him when I was a toddler!!!!!!! emoticon

Tomorrow, Aunt Juanita is having the whole family over for an early Thanksgiving get-together. I've mentioned Aunt Juanita in several of my blogs. She celebrated her 91st birhday on Nov. 1, and she is STILL going strong. She does the entire meal all by herself. When asked, "What should I bring?" she always says, "Not a thing!" and she MEANS IT!!!!!! Anyway, it will be fun and nice to see family members that I don't see except maybe once or twice a year. Aunt Juanita started her family dinners a few years ago. She was in her 80's then, and she said, "Since I am getting old, I wanted to have us all together, because I may not be around next year to see all of you!" Years have passed, and she is still around (Bless her heart). Now she says, "Well, I am STILL here!" emoticon

She really is a "Wonder Woman," and I contribute her long and healthy life to the healthy lifestyle that she lives. She eats right, and she teaches several hours of line dance classes each week in addition to going to several ballroom dances.
