When I was 6 years old I spent 4th of July weekend with my Aunt Ann. I had the best time ever. Ann bought fireworks and set them off in her backyard in La Mirada Ca. Hard to picture Ann setting off fireworks, but she did, always the best hostess.
We went out to eat and then went to see the new movie out, Bye Bye Birdie, with Dick Van Dyke. Ann was wonderful with both children and animals. When my Aunt June passed away she told Ann she would see her later on the other side. I imagine they are once again together in a better place.
