Mother of Acts of Hope is 91 today!

The one and only Mother of Acts of Hope is 91 years old today!

Father of Acts of Hope, a younger man who will not turn 91 till November, is a romantic and has written a sonnet for the occasion, and of course given his beloved a bouquet of roses.

We children can't be with Parents of Acts of Hope this weekend, but hope to converge on them in a couple of weeks. Meanwhile, Happy Birthday to our indomitable mother!

Photo: Autumn scene, Vermont. Nicked from somewhere on the Web. Mother of Acts of Hope's parents founded a summer camp in Vermont, and many years later my parents bought an old house near there, site of many happy summers and family gatherings. We no longer own the house but we still love and visit Vermont.

A Blessed and Happy Birthday to Mother of Jane R. She must be quite a woman.

I thought we would get the sonnet, too.

All of it...La chanson de vieux amants! And great joy to them. You told me once you could play and sing that. Not that I'm hinting, but....

Happy Birthday to the Indomitable Mother of Acts of Hope.

I am glad to know that somewhere on the planet there is a sweet man writing sonnets to the woman he loves. That makes it seem like all is right with the world.
