Surprise Grandma Johnstone for her 80th birthday? How was this going to be accomplished? She lives in a town with a population of about 300. Everyone knows everyone else’s business. In that small town, keeping a secret is impossible but with careful planning, my Grandma’s children were able to pull off a SURPRISE party in the small town of Kennebec.
All of her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren were able to make it to this special event. I was concerned Grandma was going to keel over with a heart attack the moment we all yelled, “SURPRISE!!!” But the story has a great ending. She didn’t die, she didn’t even pass out. I think she lost her breath for a moment, but that was the extent of the loss of air she suffered.
A wonderful time was had by all, and we were able to experience one of the best days my Grandma has had in her 80 years here on earth.
