M is for Mable


Mazin’ Miss Mable, a Marvel of Modern Medicine 

We motored a few miles on over to Morgan, passing some majestic mountains on the way, to mark the 100th Valentine’s Day for a marvelous matriarch, my mother-in-law’s sister-in-law, Mable.


We had somehow managed to miss her 100th birthday milestone last month. If she was even minimally miffed about our mess-up, she never did make mention of it.  Mighty magnanimous of her, mind you.



We did make it to the mini-exhibit with its much memorabiliamaybe not a massive museum like the Met, but held at the modern library, it was magnificent enough.



That Mable, she’s mighty fine. From what I gathered, she's a mover and a shaker who's much-loved and still very mobile. Mentally, she's sharp as a machete; her memory is meticulous. Don't mess with Mable or she'll happily give you a piece of her mind and more.

It's mind-boggling, maybe even a miracle, how she's managed to maximize her mortality and I was mighty glad to get to mingle with her, even if just for a moment






Oh, did I forget to mention? Mable's quite masterful with the pen too...maybe she needs to start blogging...click on the poem to magnify it so you can read it. If it doesn't make you laugh, then I find myself worried about your miserable mood...


Happy 100th, Mable...and may you yet make many more memories!!


And happy Alphabe-Thursday over at Mrs. Matlock's. She mumbled something about a mandate for this week's letter to be M. I'm betting that a multitude of other Alphabetarians hit the mark right on the money...check out their masterpieces by clicking HERE

What a great M post! Mabel looks amazing for 100 years young and you can tell she is sharp as machete. It boggles my mind to think of all the things she must have witnessed over the years. Have a wonderful weekend, Nan

Mable must be quite a character, judging from her poem. What a lot of memories she'd have to share - and I loved the old photos.

I absolutely adored this Marvelous Museum of Mable...

Sounds like she had quite a Magnetic personality...

And that poem was too cute... It definitely gave me a little chuckle...

You're so good with your letter M. There are so many words to marvel on. It's great to know she made it to the perfect 100, and wish her many more years to come!
