Delbert, otherwise known as my Dad! We had a surprise 80th birthday party for him earlier this month at one of my favorite places, the Noble County Public Library main facility in Albion. The gifts, at his request: Pepsi and Snickers candy bars. Hey, he's 80, he should get whatever he wants.
|That's Dad on the left, Aunt Dorothy, and Uncle Rodney.|
|It's very important, during a birthday celebration, to have a birthday cake. Them's the rules.|
|Santa! I know him! Oh, wait ... that's my brother Jeff, in one of those very few occasions I could get a pic without him making a face. His wife Cathy is beside him, and across is Cousin Vickie.|
|And now for my favorite table! Daughter Charis on the left, then Cathy, Emily, Lillianna, and daughter Jillian.|
|Just a small part of the group as they arrive from every state of the Union, or at least three of them.|
|Kids! SO many kids! This is all that would stand still at one time.|
