I am Proud of my Sister

A little bragging here.

My sister has her 75th birthday this week.

Upon returning from living in Germany for about 40 years (teaching) she got out her old violin and started taking lessons again and now is next to the first violin in the very respectable Equinox Chamber Orchestra in San Diego County

That is the kind of thing that keeps you "young" and alive and growing. Congrats to her.
