Three score and ten

My daughter Dallas and I
Tomorrow I will reach three score and ten...Lord willing.
The blessings of those years are uncountable, but four of them are at the top...Vance Conrad, Travis Austin, Dallas Page and Derrick Rogers.
Last night Dallas, husband Todd, and grandchildren Erin, Abby and Max drove in from Amarillo, spent the night, and took me, Susan and Travis out to lunch at Hideaway. This has to be the best birthday present ever. 
More reminiscing, some black and white photos,  and my unique birth announcement tomorrow.
