photoblog image I'm 98, you know..

This is my Great aunt and she's fantastic.  She's actually in her 99th year...so she'd actually (and quite readily) tell you that instead! A very strong and independent lady and her secret?..maintaining  a healthy interest in everything and everyone (I think this captures that curiousity).  This was taken at her kid sister's 90th.

Now I'm really confused! Are you black or white?
Old age sure hasn't deemed the spark in her!
Barbara: Deji, Deji...is that your approach to life? Everything has to be black or white? And re my aunt, she definitely has a spark...she's a Chelsea fan and was just letting me know how badly Arsenal are doing at the moment!

This is a lovely picture of your Aunt. Only just seen it today as I didn't manage to log on at the weekend. I hope we all manage to stay as alive and fit as she is when (if?)we get to her age.
Barbara: only if we're healthy and have our wits about us!

She's aged gracefully, she's still got all her hair smile
