Mom’s Senior Dance

Mom and all her friends at Grannies House got together today and had their 1st annual “Senior Dance”.  All her friends and family were invited and did we ever have a wonderful time.

While everyone was getting acquainted we were entertained with music furnished by the “Tremblin Chorus”.  They were a lively group made up of Parkinson’s patients and their wives or husbands.  They sang a variety of songs including oldies but goodies.

Everyone was really fed well.  This is a picture of our lunch.   Mmmm, very delicious.

Mom looked really beautiful all dressed in her Hawaiian clothes, lea and flower in her hair.  Her hair was all made up for the occasion.  She was really pleased to see both Bev and I.

I caught Mom’s friends Cora and Frieda eating their meals.  Eat up girls !!  They looked like they were really enjoying it.

Her other friend Maxine was sitting next to Bev.  They were having a great conversation. We had a fun table.

Then Bev got up and danced with Mom.  They were really having a great time on the dance floor.  Mom sure looked great in her Hawaiian garb.

Then I decided to try my hand on the dance floor (after much coaxing by Bev).  Once I got out there it wasn’t so bad after all.

This is a nice picture of Mom’s friend Frieda.  She is always very inquisitive about us kids.
