family gathering celebrating my gram’s 99 years lived (and still kicking and walking and thinking and doing crossword puzzles and craft projects) over pizza
Really she requested pizza for her party.
son (mi’ dad), gram (99 years old today), great grans (niece-nicole and nephew-troy)
grandson (mi’ brother-paul), great grands (my niece and nephew)
daughter in law (mi’ mom), grandson (mi’ brother)
no she isn’t dead dead–she is just dead asleep in the middle of it all, literally (kind of reminds me of a Robert Longo image). i contemplated puting a white chalk line around her but figured that might miff my folks on whose carpet she lays. i swore to myself i wouldn’t post this, but then said to myself, “naaaa.”0
