Happy Birthday, Ms. Ouida -- 99 Years Young


This fiesty chick is sharp as a tack!
It was an honor to go and celebrate her big day - a surprise party hosted by her daughter, Kay.
She's young lookin' too.
These people have good genes run nun' in their family.

Ms. Ouida is only in a wheelchair cuz she had surgery.
She'll be up at it in no time.

Prayer warrior.
Optimistic.
Influential in the lives of those who know her.

Nanny Carol was with us, too.
She and Ms. Ouida were in a prayer group together years ago. That's the connection of how we know the birthday girl.

It was a delightful time to gather among friends...new ones and old.

Met a dear named Ms. Charlotte who epitomizes southern charm and etiquette. Found out she's a holy roller like us. I'd a never guessed it but am thrilled to make her acquaintance. Hope to see her again.

A church pianist played Amazing Grace as we all sang along.
Ate chicken salad sandwiches, grapes, strawberries, ice cream, and cupcakes.
Drank one of those ginger ale punches that are refreshingly tasty on a hot summer day like today.

Can't wait to join the gang again next year for Ms. Ouida's 100th year celebration.
It'll be another wonderful time with dear friends!
