Happy 85th

Grenville and I have been on a family visit road trip with stops in NJ, RI and CT. Along our travels, we were able to enjoy and share here some beautiful fall foliage.

The culmination of this trip was the 85th birthday celebration of Pat’s Aunt Anne in New London, CT, this past weekend. 

Aunt Anne is a purist and doesn’t believe in celebrating her Special Day on any day other than the actual day. And, her favorite birthday gift is lottery tickets.

We hope she get a winning one cause she received a lot of "birthday" tickets.

Lee's grandmother started getting $100 from family and friends for her birthday to use at the slots. Maybe you need to give Auntie $86 next year! A sure thing over a lottery ticket. I love them, too, just for the anticipation.

Lovely. Took a friend back to get his car today, he left the lights on when we were eating our free meal for vets yesterday. Laughed when the sales guy asked him how many year battery he wanted. At 88 does one go for the gusto?

So neat you got to celebrate Aunt Anne's birthday with her! Beautiful woman! I love her choice of gifts,honestly, at 85 years old, she probably has everything else she needs, so I'm sure she enjoys anticipating if she has a winning ticket or not :)

Good luck to Aunt Anne in the lottery! I hope she wins big!

I enjoyed the New London architecture and the beautiful fall colors you saw. You can't beat New England for leaf peeping!
