Happy Birthday Norman 102

Tuesday  June 6th will be an old friend's 102nd birthday and I just ordered his special chocolate ganache cake that he loves, I tried to talk him into a white cake white icing, no way.

I go out to his assisted living apartment every Monday and spend most of the day with him. We go out to lunch and do some shopping for him if he needs something. This picture was taken last Monday at a local bar b que restaurant.



Can you imagine living to 102 years old? I'm sure if he knew what all was going on in the world he would be shocked. He just quit reading the local newspaper last year . He still likes watching Cardinal baseball, I call him during the week to tell him when a baseball game is on

Now I am looking for a wine bottle tree to put in my backyard around my one and only flower bed. I use to see these at local nurseries however not now that I want one. I have had lots blue wine bottles given to me and I have emptied a few also LOL This is one window full . Some of the bottles are water bottles.



The clutter on this table will hopefully soon be cleaned off. Still waiting on my air condition man to put in a new compressor for my central air. It's to get hot this weekend and I need my air conditioner.

yard sale still in the works

  1. I cannot imagine living to that age. What a milestone!! You can find bottle trees on Amazon.

  2. He doesn't look a day over 83. I'd say he's going to be around for a while.

  4. Dear Janice:
    Air conditioning - a must have here in Missouri! I saw one of those bottle things - maybe ? at the Brass Armadillo in Blue Springs. Your bottles look lovely. We are having our subdivision yard sale today. My heart isn't in it as I want to play decoupage.

  5. Wow, what a milestone Norman has reached! What a great friend your are to him. I have one of those bottle tree thingys in my garden....I got it at a craft sale. It is heavy wrought iron and I put different colored bottles on it. They are pretty in the sun.

  6. How nice of you to keep up a friendship with Norman, and what a blessing! I made close friends with an elderly lady, but when she passed away, I was crushed!

  7. Norman looks 30 years younger than his age. How old did his parents live? What did he do for a living? Was he married? We need more facts about this fascinating person.
    Love the bottle tree idea.

  9. Janice I still think that is so very sweet of you to care for Norman and to be his friend. I know it is a paid position but I know that you have a heart for Jesus and caring for others makes you happy because that's our Lord wants us to do. What a blessing you must be to Norman. You are such a dear! xoxo

  10. Sounds like a great person to know I sell a lot of Mobile Homes in a 55+ community and have met so many wonderful friends along the way!

  11. I love you and the sweet friend you are to others! My Louis Dean will be 81 this fall and tells me all the time he's going to live to be 116! Realistically he thinks 100.
    Those blue bottles are pretty! I kept my reisling wine bottles and 'planted' them in a flower bed! They haven't reproduced but I still enjoy looking at them!
