Now We Are 70

Tabby and I at end of May 2018 on Admiralty Island outside of Juneau Alaska. We had just spent several hours watching brown bears and were about to return to our cruise ship on a 6-passenger float plane.


In response to Penni’s plea for bulletin new,

“So. Gals. Most of us turn 70 this year or we already have. And I would love to hear how you celebrated your birthday or plan to celebrate it.”

I received some wonderful photos.

Barb Page: July 21 I will be celebrating 70 at Disneyland. But, at Spring Break friends took me up to Johnson City.
