Mama Logli's 89th birthday

“Today you are you! That is truer than true! There is no one alive who is you-er than you!” — Dr. Seuss

AND WHAT a fantastically wonderful "you" Virginia Logli is! July 21 was her 89th birthday. We took over a cake, ice cream and an orchid to celebrate. She got lots of birthday cards and calls, and her niece, Denise Logli Jones, came over with pink squirrels so we could all drink a toast to Virginia.

Virginia with her 8-pound cake, orchid and lots of birthday cards,
and she's wearing beads we brought her from New Orleans.

I kinda overkilled it on the cake. Paul, Virginia and I each had gigantic slices, we sent one home with Denise, Paul took a piece to Dena, Virginia's 95-year-old sister-in-law, we left a slice for Virginia for later, and we took one to Lee (age 105), Virginia's other sister-in-law, and we still have half a cake left. 

We figure we'll freeze the rest and give it to Ann and Jonathan (Virginia's daughter and grandson who'll be flying in from California) to take to Mark's, (Virginia's son), when they drive her down to Fairfield for a visit in a couple of weeks — and they can polish off the rest.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!! We adore you.
