We are now the same age again and it is the first year that one is eligible for social security benefits. This is good news for the grandchildren as grandma is much more generous than grandpa. The staff got Connie a scarf (because she had gone 3 days since she bought her last one) and some bathroom soaps and creams. They were lovely. This is our 3 Portguese and 5 North Americans--with 6 more coming on Wedesday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEAR.
