#288 The Giggling Auntie

An aunt grows more treasured as time goes by.” 
Author Unknown

Aunt Marie (second one on left)

A visit to my beloved Aunt Marie is on the docket for today.  She is my mother's youngest sister and is the spitting image of her in both looks and personality which makes her even more cherished to be around.  Being exactly 19 years three months and nine days older than me she acts more like a fun loving sister than the sophisticated aunt that we proclaim her to be.   Her sense of humor is outrageous with giggles engulfing the house whenever she is around.  

The afternoon will be spent catching up on all the details of the extended family members as she has been appointed the historian and present recorder of all our tribal news.  Every clan needs someone to keep track of us as we are sprawled from coast to coast and beyond and, fortunately for us, she tends to be a master at details.  

If you are lucky enough to have an aunt in your life to compare stories, learn the history of the family or just share a good chuckle consider yourself a lottery winner.  Aunt Marie is our treasure and I'm looking forward to having her show us another wild and crazy good time today. Beware, we could experience one of those laughable moments that causes tears to run down our legs.

Thanks for reading # 288 of 7777.
