What a crowd at Arlene's birthday!! From Thursday ‘til Saturday, Karen and Sue Lanther were there visiting. On the 3rd, the Merrills from Andover came and also Mr. and Mrs. Dawson Smith. Naturally, Gloria, Wilma and Wayne were also there to congratulate her. If she left out anyone, she's sorry. Plus she wanted to make my job easier for me. Oh, and by the way, did you notice the sign saying, “Honk, Nana is 90?”
