Life begins at 40 - but so do fallen arches, rheumatism, faulty eyesight, and the tendency to tell a story to the same person, three or four times. ~Helen Rowland
Today marks a truly momentous day, Aunt Nikki is the big 40! Yes, my sister is officially over the hill, even though she's resided on that hillside for some time now. Giggle giggle. (Unlike me, I'll always remain on the other side.) Or as Kyle used to say, "Aunt Nitti is ozer (over) the hill!" as he motioned going over and down a hill with his chubby little figures.
Nicole came from a time before the internet and email, when we still used rotary phones, listened to record players and tapes (heck dad still had his 8-track player in his truck), and before cable and satellite. Nicole has lived through eight presidents and counting including Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan, Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Obama.
Nicole has seen and accomplished a lot over these forty years, graduating from Penn State University in engineering, traveling the world over (sometimes with me), starting a side company (with me) and most importantly becoming Aunt Nikki, a title she does not take lightly.
So what has gone on over these last forty years from that faithful day, March 16, 1974? A lot! Let's focus on 1974....
