'Gram of the week (10/24/11 - 10/30/11)


Mary turned 70 this week and her children sent her a singing telegram out to Mattituck, where they were celebrating at the Transfiguration of Christ Church.

Fond of playing BINGO and Scrabble online, “Crabmary” is always early with everything; including birthday wishes. She gives gifts earlier than she should and she’ll even wish you a Happy Birthday on the day before your actual day.

She’s quirky in that she always has to smell her food before she eats it (maybe not THAT quirky. After pouring bad milk into my coffee  many years ago, I’ve never recovered. To this day, I’ll take a quick whiff of the milk before adding it to my coffee; even if I personally open a brand new container!). She’s also lots of fun at parties. One Halloween, Mary dressed up as a Bag Lady. She was so convincing, that no one knew it was she and suspected an actual Bag Lady had crashed the party!

Her only big regret: back in High School, she and her girlfriend cut school to go see Elvis Presley in concert. Never got the chance though, because they got caught. So some 54 years later, her family thought it was time to right a wrong and send an Elvis to their Mom.

Thank you. Thankyouverymuch!
