Dell, Mimi and Jane in the above photo. Dell and Jane came to our house for a mini Sewing Club luncheon. Over sixty three years ago, the Sewing Club began. There were several ladies at the time and they would meet every three weeks. It started as a true sewing club and the ladies made baby clothes for their first born. Several members came and went but the last twenty six years it has been the same ladies. When I came into the family the most of the ladies had put their sewing needles aside and were into getting together and just having a good meal and fellowship. Keeping up with each others. Most usual I would have the good fortune to help Mimi prepare the house and meals for the Sewing Club girls. I enjoyed sitting and listening to their stories. This get together was a spur of the moment idea of my SIL who had come up  from Jackson to be with Mimi therefore we did not have time to properly invite Mz Mary because she lives in assisted living in Hendersonville. Dell was so cute talking about her granddaughter that lives with her and how she did not approve of the way she dressed when going out in the evenings with friends. Jane is a wonder because she is ninety two and still plays tennis and skis. Dell and Jane are the only ones who still drive and when Dell pulled up in her big town car,  I thought she was gonna knock Jane's little Honda out of its parking place. There was only a good inch between the two cars. Mimi and her two sewing club friends had a wonderful time visiting and Bep and I enjoyed them being together. 
The kitty justice is for us to all grow up like these ladies and have long term friendships.

Oh to have the energy of these ladies even now! I am afraid I am so slow now that if I get to be that old I will be bedridden.

You are correct. Especially, Jane is a live wire at 92. If she would take it on she could take care of the budget crisis of the USA as she is very thrifty and would not let them waste a dime or penny. Peace

LOL I think I would be extremely happy to get to that age and be as sharp and healthy as they are. Peace

Hi Di, That is so neat to get those 3 friends together... Dell must be incredibly healthy.. That is amazing!!!! Of course, My father-in-law used to climb on his roof and clean his gutter when he was about 96... ha ha

A few years ago, we took G's parents back to Mom's hometown --and we visited an old friend. That was such a joy to me--just hearing them talk to each other...

Hugs,
Betsy

Only Jane does the sports but both she and Dell still drive. Lovely ladies. Peace

I am amazed cleaning gutters at 96. These ladies have health issues but do not let it stop them from doing what they wish to do. Jane is the one that still plays tennis and skis. Mimi is the only one that does not drive but she has a driver (Me) Peace
