Mom and Dad are doing well. Living independently in Parksville, B.C.
Doreen was born in Calgary 1929. Born right into the Depression.
Families had to be self-sufficient. They put home grown vegetables into jars to get through winter.
Her family had one pig and one dairy cow when she was growing up. Later she had her own horse in the city. It ate the neighbours flowers and walked back to the Indian Reserve when it got loose.
Though my family doesn’t normally celebrate birthdays, for 90 we made an exception. 🎂 🙂
Yvonne hosted the party. Lasagna, garlic bread, salads and a wee bit of alcohol.
A good time was had by all.
