A Skippy centenary

If [personal profile] poliphilo had not posted that his mother, born in 1921, was celebrating her 100th birthday, I might not have realised that wait a minute, my mother was born in 1921, or indeed that 1921 was 100 years ago. But she was, and it is, so today, although she is not around to celebrate it, is my mother's hundredth birthday.

I don't know what to say about this, but it feels necessary to say something. She loved a party. Here she is, having fun, making mischief, and all in a good cause. (She wasn't Mayoress of Islington, she was Mayor - among many other things she was, but that's the Press for you!) This entry cross-posted from Dreamwidth: comments always welcome, at either location.
