Cowart's Common Room
Guess what?

I am going to be a great great aunt!

I was an aunt at aged two and a half, a great aunt at twenty-seven and now at aged sixty one I will be a great great aunt in a few months as my eldest great niece is expecting.

My sister will be a great grand-mother - goodness!Laughing

And today Bill's uncle is 105!

Fennie's Avatar Well done Faith! If ever there was a difference in public perceptions in literature and beyond it is between aunts (who are generally shrewish and unforgiving - especially to boys) and great aunts who are almost universally loved. Literature says nothing about great great aunts so it is for you to blaze a trail. So there you are, you have graduated to the ranks of eternal goodness and loving kindness. Just think what doors you will be opening to your greatv great nieces and nephlings in years to come (and you are still a spring chicken, hardly out of the egg). We must arrange for your pidgies to give you a flypast and dip their wings when the great day arrives. Very HappyVery Happy

Re:
Fairy Nuff's Avatar I'm loving the mental picture building up here of tales down the generations of Great Grand Aunt Faith who used to keep sick pigeons in rabbit hutches and nurse them back to health. Laughing
I think it's a requirement of Great Aunts to be daffy and lovable.
