My Dad turned 99 on Monday. He’s still in relatively good health, although he has gone down since my Mother died in June. He suffered a small stroke about three weeks ago, but is much better than when we last saw him a couple of weeks ago.
My brother and sister-in-law came down from Indiana this week, so we all got together last night to celebrate Dad’s birthday. Cracker Barrel is one of Dad’s favorite places so we got together to celebrate. All three of his children (do I qualify as a child when I’m pushing 70?) and our spouses were there.
The Cracker Barrel staff came to the table and sang Happy Birthday to Dad and presented him with some apple cobbler and ice cream. I think that was Dad’s favorite part of the meal.
