Today is a very special day. It is my Auntie Ann's birthday. She is my mom's older sister which makes her my aunt. Auntie Ann is my mom's very bestest friend besides being her sister. They were born 13 months apart and were best pals growing up. Oh, they had their ups and downs like me an Shiloh, but they have never stopped loving each other.
Aunti Ann always blazed the trails with Pappy and Granny. As soon as she got permission to do things like wear lipstick, Mom just dropped in line and did it too. Mom never had to do battle with the 'rents.
Auntie Ann always knows how to make Mom laugh, but will cry with her too. There are family fueds but Mom and Auntie Ann always stick together. They are a pack for sure.
When Auntie Ann turned 50, Mom bought her an old purple dress from the thrift store, a floppy straw hat with a hugh paper flower on it, and some old granny shoes. She made Auntie Ann wear them for her birthday party. Mom read her the poem..."I Shall Wear Purple ".
Auntie Ann went all over town showing off the outfit bragging that her sister gave it to her for her birthday. Mom started getting phone calls from the bank, grocer, and Post Office. It was so funny.
Fast forward a year when Mom turns 50................
Auntie Ann's gift to Mom was.....you guessed it....THE SAME OUTFIT!!! She told Mom she had to wear it all over town like she had done. Mom did and even took her camera to record the event. Just as Mom was ending the "event" she saw a poster with her photo on it. It was a plee to find her as she was deranged and needed pychiatric help!!
Mom nearly peed her pants. hehehehehe
Anyway, that is the kind of relationship they have. They share the good times as well as the bad. But most of all, they love each other. The bestest part is Auntie Ann loves me too!!!!
So HAPPY BIRTHDAY AUNTIE ANN!!!
