A Long Leap

My Aunt Edrie was born on this date in 1916 and thus it is her 25th birthday.  She died in 1997 at  age 81.

Albany, Oregon
Mr. Jarvis passed September 2015 in Ocala, Florida.

This is something I had forgotten. When I was a kid I thought it would be a real bummer to celebrate a birthday on a day that was not the actual date.

She was so young, sort of. And it's Sadie Hawkins Day which makes it a bit scary for single guys.

Ain't it funny how time slips away.

Happy Birthday, Aunt Edrie!

Jono, thanks for the mention of Sadie Hawkins. Al Capp was a favorite of mine and I faithfully read the exploits of the denizens of Dogpatch.

Vee, yeah; owning your own special day but once in four years seems a real gyp.

Chuck, I've heard it said, but is it really funny?

Ilene, birthday comes but once a year, or once in four years.

Interesting. I see stones in our cemetery where a single relative is buried in the family plot, but I've never seen a shared stone like this. (I don't think). And I've definitely never heard the name Edrie anywhere else.

Sharkey, I thought it interesting that the man bracketed himself with his two wives, at least on the stone. Truth, I have arranged my burial in the same manner, but there are three separate stones.
