Happy Birthday Mom 🙂

66 years…WOW.

I know I don’t feel like I’m 37 so I can’t even imagine what it’s like to not feel 66!

In 1944, the year my mom was born…

**The average cost of a new house was $3,450

**Average wages per year were $2400

**The cost of a gallon of gas was 15 cents

**A loaf of bread cost 10 cents

**Franklin D. Roosevelt becomes the only president to be elected for a 4th term

**The GI Bill of Rights was passed

**The CIA was formed

**Kidney dialysis and sunscreen were invented

**15-year-old Anne Frank is captured and sent to a concentration camp

Don’t you find history fascinating?

Mom…I love you and wish you a year filled with happiness.  I miss you.
