Happy 90th, Mama

Love, Susan

Mom’s 90th birthday was Monday, January 16th, 2017.  On that very day we had a birthday party at KB’s, which is a restaurant, bar, and dance hall at home in downtown Ghent.  In the “old days,” KB’s was Ted’s Bar and Don’s Ballroom.

“Happy 90th, Birthday, Betty Ann.”

KB’s is known for its delicious pizza and chicken wings.  As you can see, KB’s opened up its dance hall just for our family.
