Mavis turns 100.

I went to a 100year old's birthday party yesterday, this was a first for me, it was Barbara's mother      Mavis 100 birthday last week she is my oldest mate.
Held in the local club a wonderful affair all her family and a few friends.   
You can get a blessing from the pope
A letter from the Queen
I think this one is from the governor general
                                                 and this one is from the prime minister.

These were the place mats various things of interest from her lifetime
Did you know listerine was once used as a aftershave lotion, I didn't......
The front page of the daily telegraph on the day Mavis was born.

And her flowers she asked we all bring a artifical flower to make a display and give a donation to the stroke foundation instead of gifts.
Her cake was quite something made by her great grand daughter.

Here we are, The Bingo girls as Mavis called us, as we have been going for some time now.
Here is a much better picture of Mavis with her grand daughter.
She is looking good for 100.
