OMG I hope I look half as good as Judy when I’m 100! Wonderful shot Carin!
Thanks, Cheryl. She was a pistol.
I think a splash of bourbon of an evening figured into her secret. (;
That and a loving heart.
Looking good at 100! The cake looks delicious.
Yes, she must have come from excellent stock. She hadn’t even become thin the way so many elderly folk do. Well, thanks to the cake…
A picture to treasure. Delightful.
Oh, this is lovely! I just burst into a happy laugh when I clicked on to it. I love her firm grip on the cup of coffee, her sweet encouraging face — and my goodness, what a yummy looking cake. I’m sure one of the great things about turning 100 is that you can safely say “calories be damned”…! Thanks Ms. Magtree, you made my day.
I’m glad you noticed the coffee mug grip, Barbara. That cracked me up too. Especially in the presence of a perfectly good glass of wine…
And you read faces well. She was both sweet and encouraging. Died in her sleep after no real illness at all, the day after her 101st birthday.
Oh! congratulations Judy hope you devoured your cake heheh!
As I recall, she did indeed!
I wish i could reach 100 too.. Happy birthday! : )
Happy Wordless Wednesday! My entry is here.
Happy birthdays to you too. Maybe a hundred even… (:
I like her horse badge. Is there a story behind that?
Her husband was a horse guy. He died quite young by comparison, decades earlier. I don’t know the history of the brooch but am guessing it was from him, that it had some personal significance. She adored him and talked about him often, but in a very matter of fact way, no drama, no tears. So sweet that she was thinking of him at 100, sharing her cake with her one true love.
Now here’s a photo with a story. In fact, 100 years’ worth of them. It made me smile too — the intent and pleased expression on her face, the pretty, colourful cake and giant candles. She does look amazing for her age. Was she a relation, Carin? A friend? This is certainly a feel-good photo … and I’m sure it holds lots of memories for you.
She was a friend. A lovely woman, a former journalist and, yes, she certainly packed her personal century with a bag full of stories. She loved nothing more than a homemade meal, a glass of bourbon and a pair [or more] of ears to share her memories with. She loved to laugh; could be what kept the roses in her cheeks. (:
Made me smile!
Judy would be pleased. (:
Lovely to see you here!
Amazing! big congrats from me to Judy and what a fab cake :-)
Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by ;-)
