My Mother is 89 this Sunday October 12 - 2008.
We would surprise her. Where she now lives - at the elderly home. 40 minutes by public transportation from our Winter home.

And brought a bottle of Champagne, in fact this bottle was a gift to Anna at her's 3x20 celeberation some weeks ago. She wanted to share it with my Mother. The bottle was a gift from Frode (my good childhood friend - which my mother also know very well) and his woman, Astrid. So we shared memories from the 40 and early 50'ies.

We also brought 4 glasses. And Blue Grapes from our Summer House Garden (She was there before I was born). And guess who has blogged about our Grapes to Day? Click on Blue Grapes.

When we arrived, my Mother was not alone. My x-wife (scroll down to see) and our good friend Solvi had arrived some minutes earlier.

We talked and talked and enjoyed the Champagne while I unpacked my PC and connected to Internet via my Mobile Device. My Mother wanted to see how it is with her Grand Son Mats, who is living in Michigan.
She is very proud of her Grandson. My youngest boy.
Then we clicked into to Anna's 3x20 event, as shown some weeks ago here at this blog.
we left 1/4 of the Champagne in her fridge. She needed some early evening food - and we left. See the Blueberry Muffin?
We had a good time together.
And are looking forward to next years Grand Old Lady Event: 3x30 - Hurray.

I hope your mama had a wonderful day, Tor. Actually looking at the photographs, she is have a great time. Your mother is just a little older than mine is. Aren't these grand old ladies wonderful? I hope I'm as good at that age.

She looks amazing! I think it's neat that your ex-wife still is close to her.

Looks like she had a great B-day! My mom is 87 and losing a bit of memory but still is in her house with my 89 year-old dad.
Don't work too hard!

What a ripe, old age, as we say, Tor! If my mom were still living today, she'd be 91!
