My father had his 90th birthday this week. We’ve been celebrating for a month. It was my sister Lisa who decided to have small celebrations to commemorate his long and wonderful life. More to the point, he likes to fill up his calendar. He is lonely without my mother.
So, our gift to him was to eat cake for a month and sing. Such activities didn’t work well with my Iron Mae goals which is why I’m extending it to the entire summer. It did work well for him though as he was really happy to see old friends and new ones in small gatherings. The photos are moments captured at his city and country parties. We celebrated at Palma in New York that has a wonderful little cottage in the back of the restaurant that it rents out. The interior didn’t photograph well with my Polaroid. It was an enchanting afternoon though that none of us will soon forget.
