100

Recently, a lady in our neighbourhood turned 100.  As part of her birthday celebrations, she had these display boards on her fence, one for each of her ten decades, explaining what was happening in the world at that time and what she herself was doing back then.  In her 30s she was fostering Jewish children during the Second World War, for example.  Pretty amazing to think someone who's still around today was doing that back then - makes you realise how recent all these things really are.  The boards even had little devices to play sound clips, so you could hear things like the hymn that was played at her wedding.  It was really sweet and interesting and lots of people were stopping to look.  Such a nice idea :)

  1. Isn't it? I'm guessing her children/grandchildren are teachers!
