We had a wonderful day today. We had a lot of fun bowling, and then came back home for cake and ice cream. None of us are ready for the pro circuit, but we had a great time. Jerry and I, Tom and Andy, Sam, Andy's friend Charlie, Jerry's mom, and our neighbor Hilda, went with us. No, she's not the one who was out in the bikini! Hilda is a lovely lady whose spunk I greatly admire. She is 86 years young and has energy I only dream about. She and Andy have a wonderful friendship, and when I asked Andy who he wanted to invite bowling, I was not very surprised that she was on his list. Hilda is almost never home - she is a member of the ladies auxiliary at the local firehouse, plays bingo three times a week, babysits her great-great-grandson on occasion, and takes bus trips to wherever, whenever possible! She just recently completed a first-aid training course and got a certificate of completion for it! This was a pretty rigorous course, too. There were people of all ages taking it. She said she decided to take the course because she thought it would be "fun"!
Andy had a great birthday, and we all enjoyed his day with him. He is growing up way too fast for his mama's liking!
