A 101st Birthday Party...

Today I took my grandmother to the 101st birthday party for her lifelong friend, Lois Crook Taylor.  Mrs. Taylor's children and grand-children have hosted a party for her at Wagon Wheel RV Resort, which they own/operate on the Little Red River.  Mam-ma Polly is always an honored guest.  Today was no exception, as nearly 100 people gathered to celebrate this grand lady.  Mrs. Lois looked great, and Mam-ma was dolled up and looking better than she has in weeks!  She was so excited about this birthday party.

People marveled that Mam-ma will be 98 in November.  Mrs. Lois' brother, Grimm Magness (I hope I spelled his name correctly), came from Oklahoma... he will be 90 soon.  He is the man posing in some of the photos with Mam-ma Polly.  A delicious buffet meal was served, including fresh fruits, grilled pork loin and fried chicken... and two kinds of cake!

When we left, the family was already talking with Mrs. Lois about her 102nd birthday party.  Somehow, I think she might just make it!

Summer Visit from the Dollar Family

My friend Marla Ann ( Baker) Dollar and her grandchildren... Griffin, Ruby Ann, and Roman Guy... came for a visit last night.  They try to visit Heber Springs once each summer for a few days.  They live in Fayetteville.  The children belong to Marla's daughter, Molly.  Griffin will be 12 in October,  Ruby will be 9 in August, and Roman will be 7 in December.  They had never met Timmy, and he surely had fun with them... especially playing with Ruby and trying to emulate the "big boys" with the legos and cars.

When we posed, I asked the kids to give me one "silly face," and they delivered!  Great kids... always fun to see them!  I just realized I didn't get a single picture of Greg with the kids... so sorry, honey!
