75th birthday

This weekend my sister Linda hosted a 75th birthday party for my Mom.


Actually, there was a bit of a mix-up. Mom turned 75 last year, but we thought it was only her 74th birthday. (Only?)

When we found out that Mom was already 75, we scheduled the party one week before her 76th birthday. Snuck it in just under the deadline!

To make the most of the occasion, Linda purchased a pinata.

Here’s the birthday girl, taking a poke at the pinata with her cane.


And here she is, withdrawing from the field of battle, her dignity intact.

It was a draw:  Mom didn’t bust open the pinata, but it didn’t bust her open, either.

    Excellent… Happy 75th/76th birthday to Q’s Mom…..

    I sometimes forget my Dad’s birthday which is not good… More difficult to forget my Mother’s as it’s the day before mine…

    As to their ages…. Erm…. That I would have to think about…

    Congratulations to your Mother anyway………..

    It worked out very well. It was a surprise party, and Mom never suspected a thing.

    If you want to surprise someone, wait 51 weeks before springing the party on them. Works like a charm!

    That’s awesome!
    My hubbie and I seem to have trouble remembering his mother’s b-day on time for some reason—we’ll start aiming for the day before! What a great idea! ; )
