I didn't get pictures, since I was organizing the event, which came in the middle of a busy weekend, but Aunt Olive had a successful 103rd birthday party yesterday. We held it at the Fertile Hilton. Many relatives came as my father's siblings decided the occasion was a good excuse for a family reunion. So, the weekend was full of food, music and...food. Aunt Olla's birthday, in the end, was just the dessert. But she basked in the attention and enough other people got pictures so we will have a way to remind her of the event and who attended later on. 


Meanwhile, campaigning goes on. I knocked doors today, and there is always bookwork and correspondence to clean up. I haven't been a very good nephew about getting in to see Olive at least once per week.
