Happy Birthday to Orlando Grandma!


Heels, a jet and a ladder-pregnant with Mr. Tennis in 1958! Nothing stops her!

Orlando Grandma is experiencing some of the colder weather this country has to offer up in Iowa while she visits her sister Vicky.

Hey, that looks like MY coat! Ha, ha!


  She should feel right at home, just take a look at some of  the snow she experienced as a young Air Force wife stationed throughout the country:




Then she spent many years living in Panama and Florida with her three young sons and forgot how to tolerate that cold weather, but as I said, nothing stops her!

Her three young caballeros! (Mr. T on the right, Tony on the left and Kurt in the middle) This most likely was in Atalaya, located in the interier of the country of Panama.


Their grandfather, grandma's father, was a rancher and the boys learned to ride and herd cattle right along with the Panamanian cowboys.


Orlando Grandma, we hope you are having a wonderful birthday and are wearing plenty of layers!
Love, your family in Orlando.

The Writer, Grandma and The Maven, someone has either turned 30 in this picture or it was The Writer's 10th birthday - I think the latter!
