Jane's Big Day

Today is my sister Jane's birthday. I won't tell you her age, but next year she'll be a big round number.

Jane is extremely bright with a strong creative side. She once wrote the Ontario LSAT test cold (no preparatory class, no study) just to make a point to someone that it was just a test and no big deal. She scored very high, the top three percent, if I remember correctly.

Jane's always amazingly busy. If she's not exploring, creating or building, then she's hosting, organising or facilitating. Here she is enjoying a day at the beach, not by laying in the sand, but by building a castle with turrets and a very large moat.

Jane's love of shopping is legendary in our family. She loves shoes and at work would have an entire desk drawer devoted to extra pairs of them. Here she is showing her latest togs:

Don't let that expression fool you, she loves shopping.

Happy Birthday Jane!

Happy birthday Jane! I bet you're looking forward to the "big round number" that's coming up next year. In any event, all the best on your 99th birthday.

Yes, a big happy birthday Jane. Hope you got my voicemail... now that was a nice and personal birthday greeting, wasn't it?? Love those old photos. I remember that old German record player in the shopping photo... ah memories. Can't believe it's almost 100 years ago!

Mom you're adorable! But you're not smiling? Happy Birthday!

Thank-you for all the birthday wishes. Ah, those was serious then .. dinosaurs roamed the earth, colour wasn't invented yet .. all of life occurred in black, white and shades of grey. So so long ago,,,

In any case, I am looking forward to the triple digits!
