The Big Nine-Oh



That's right, 90 years young.

Yesterday on my birthday I traveled from our California home to Kentucky to join my family and many, many friends in celebrating my mom's 90th birthday. At the party on Sunday each of us four daughters will make a speech on different parts of Mom's life, complete with Powerpoint photos. It's gonna be a lot of fun--'cause if anyone knows how to have fun and enjoy life, it's Ruth Seamands.

So no time to celebrate my own birthday. But hey, it rather pales in comparison to hitting 90, don't you think?

Happy Birthday to both of you! I have a mother-in-law that went parasailing at 83. We had her scuba diving at 76 and she still snow skis--learned at 65. She's an inspiration!

Happy, happy birthday to both you and Ruth. She is a doll. The gathering sounds like so much fun!

Much love and my most sincere happy birthday wishes to Mama Ruth.

With admiration from a very impressed fan.


Hmmm. A power point birthday? Great idea. Thanks!

I can only pray I'm half as spry at her age!

I was excited to finally meet your mom at ACFW this year. Please do pass on birthday wishes to her. An amazing lady, and you take after her.

Hey, Ruth! If you're reading this ... wishing you a very happy birthday! You're one cool chick to be parasailing at 84 (Call me chicken, but I wouldn't do it at any age!)
