"O" is for...

Octogenarian

This is my maternal Gramma (Stewart). These were taken at her 81st birthday party in August of 1998. This sweet lady had 12 kids, 7 boys and 5 girls.

The fella with Gramma is her Uncle Curt. I believe he was 96. Their birthdays were very close. Uncle Curt's wife (not shown) was at the party as well and she was 92. I wonder if this means I am going to be living a long life...


I want to thank those who gave me recommendations on SLR cameras yesterday. I do appreciate it.

I thank all who have stopped by and left comments. I do appreciate it. Be sure to check out Quilldancer to find more participants of the Alphabet project.

How nice to be an octogenarian looking that great!
It must run in the family...
Great choice for "0"!

Octogenarian! What a fabulous choice for "O"! I was having a pitiful time thinking of ANYthing! This is GREAT! And those O's look like they were still going pretty strong -- I think it's a good bet you will live long! (if you take care of yourself!)

What a great choice! And how good they look even at this respectful age! There's a pretty good chance that you have their genes too!
