This is Josh, the Maintenance Man, dancing with one gal who was all decked out!
Eleanor is in the center, dancing with an elderly gent whom I'd never before seen out of his wheelchair.
And here's my Mom, as they were presenting her with her bouquet and crown:
James, one of my Mom's best buds, was crowned the King, and the happy couple was wheeled around the dance floor to "Let Me Call You Sweetheart".
I remember my Dad singing that to my Mom many, many years ago, and I wondered if she remembered it too!
Do you remember when the Beatles came out with "When I'm 64" and we all that we'd never get that old? Well, honey lamb, if you aren't there yet, you're fast approaching! And 64 isn't old anymore!! My Mom will be 92 in May, and she's lovin' every minute of life in her skilled care home! You Go Girl!!!!
(I found out later that the staff elected the Queen and King, based on their willingness to help others and reach out to their neighbors. Mom and James keep their crown for 4 months and then must choose their replacements. Such politics!)
YES WE CAN!!!
