The Birthday Girls

Our granddaughter Molly and her Great-Grandmother Marjorie share a birthday. On August 12 Molly was 12 years old and Marjorie was 91. Susan prepared a nice birthday lunch and we wished the girls a Happy Birthday. We surprised Molly with the gift any 12 year old girl would be delighted to receive; her very own cell phone. Not just any cell phone but one designed for sending text messages, qwerty keyboard and all.

We handed her the package nicely gift wrapped. While she was opening it the telephone began to ring. "Hurry and open it up -- answer your phone!" She was surprised and very pleased. She showed the phone to Great-gramma who tried to answer it. "Hellooo? Hellooo?"

What lovely pictures of both ends of life's spectrum. I'm afraid I'm one of those people who cannot understand why EVERYONE needs to be on the phone 24/7 but I'm sure Molly is in seventh heaven with her gift.

Happy birthday girls.

Happy birthday Molly !
Happy birthday Marjory !
My children (13 and 11 years old) wonder to have a cell phone ! but their mother and father think it's an unusefull thing ! so they wait, and wait and wait ...!
Molly is very lucky !
