What would you do if you received a car for your birthday? Well, without mentioning any names, this happened to a pleasant lady in our community. It was given to her by her children on her 75th birthday.
Not bad, especially when what you had has run its course. I’m sure it was much appreciated.
Congratulations. Have a nice 75th birthday and many more in the future!
