We traveled to Millersburg, PA for Clara's 99th birthday; we did a drive about in the area and went out for dinner at a real home-cooking restaurant. The chicken pot pie was authentic. Clara gets around well and, except for some days when memory fails a bit, is sharp and involved.


these are a couple of photos taken in Clara's room the day of our visit.









A couple of days later, on the big day, we traveled with Clara down to New Cumberland for a birthday party/family reunion at brother Sam's house. The Perry Count Quigleys were there as well.
