My Mom & I went to visit Uncle Howard today, his 93rd birthday! Mom made him his favorite thing, Molasses cookies, her Mother's recipe. She also got him some good Old Fashion Gifford's Vanilla Ice Cream & a small chocolate cake, candies, cards & yes a great big balloon!!

He recently had surgery, a pacemaker, and he looks MARVELOUS!! He states he is felling better & happy that he has made the decision to move in w/his son.

His new "room-mate" Sweetie, is a mini Schnauzer. She was beautiful & friendly and she wakes up Uncle Howard everyday.

Once again, at any age, man's best friend!

I try & I do feel guilty that I haven't been sooner to see him. Mom did all the baking & buying. I just drove her there cause she said she was still feeling under the weather. However, not too too bad that we went to that steak house she likes & is in FL too, sorry can't remember the name & then off to The Christmas tree Shop for some looking around.
Cuz is coming over today to drop off their cat too.............
Love from Maine!
