We were determined to keep this a small and quiet affair and didn't make
it known to anybody but the kids and grand kids.
It was social media that turned this into a major happening. A little
scary but heart-warming just the same. We received hundreds of well
wishes from friends and family and our kids got together to surprise us with
an outrageously expensive bottle of champagne and gift cards to a couple
of the finest restaurants in the area.
We had a fine meal with Arnie and Rebecca and spent the remaining part of
the evening reminiscing and looking at old photo albums. Hey! That's
what old folks do.
