Big Party Coming Up

Friday, September 20, 2019

My sweet mother is turning 98 in a couple of months and my brothers have all of a sudden thrown themselves into action to work on the special birthday party that we are planning for her, probably because they all live in Houston, and right now getting out and about in Houston is an iffy proposition, what with Tropical Storm Imelda dropping up to 45 inches of rain on the flat area that is in the Houston metropolitan area....

all of them (and my mom) we’re out in the storm yesterday when it got going good (really bad), but all of them got home safely, though the usual routes were under water, and the alternate routes took hours extra to go short distances... still, if you have to take refuge, it’s nice if you can be stranded in a Jason’s Deli, am I Right?!?!??

Anyhow, since I’m the only sibling who lives outside of Houston, my responsibilities are more in the invitation department, while they discuss menus and caterers and canapés... Fortunately, they all have gracious and capable wives who know how to cook, and also know how to party healthily... what more can you ask for?

Still, Pinterest is full of party food offerings..... I’d best keep up my swimming schedule just in case...
