I think I made up for the lack of photos in the latter part of the week.
First, though, a couple of flower pics from last week.
Lilies of the valley are so abundant right now, my favorites.
So, yes, Wednesday was my birthday and I wrote a rather lengthy reflective post About Getting Older.
Thursday we met half way with dear friends we had worked with forty years ago in Germany and Austria. The agreed upon half-way point was Ivan and Kim's in Jonesville, Michigan. We had such a wonderful time all together sharing life stories and enjoying great food at The Saucy Dog.

Friday I drove to Warsaw to Global Auto my youngest brother's shop. He replaced the battery in my car and I went across town to Grace Village to visit with Mother and Dad.
Today, Saturday, Mother and I were given a tour of some of the available apartments at Grace Village and picked one that met her criteria and is close to a missionary friend. The next month or so we hope to have her moved in.

I visited my college dean who recently moved to Grace Village. She still remembers some of the horror stories of the job when she felt like the "wicked witch of the east", as she puts it. If I live to be 94 like her I hope I can be such a lovely person. I doubt I could ever remember as much as she does.

There was a fancy Mother-Daughter tea at Mother's church.
Mike spent the day at an Art Fair.
