A Great 90th Birthday Party

It was a great time being able to celebrate the 90th birthday of my mother in law over this past week end. Gladys is the youngest 90 year old I think you could ever meet. She is more active than anyone else that I know and even when Helen, her daughter, wants to get together with her mother she has to make an appointment.

Gladys volunteers her time in the senior center in Natick, MA and was even voted Senior Woman of the Year in Natick, MA. There is nothing she can’t do so she does everything.

It was a lot of work putting the party together but my wife Helen knew exactly what she wanted and put it together and is was a smashing success. Over 50 people attended the celebration and we all ate until our sides burst. Many of the guests were friends of Gladys and had never been to the house so seeing the Ventriloquist Central Collection was a lot of fun. I of course had to give a tour to all and was happy to do so. No fun having a collection that you can’t share.

I have enclosed a few pictures of Me, My wife Helen, Gladys and my son Jason .
