Alyce in 'Wonderland'

A couple of days ago, Ron and I visited a friend in Halifax 
who had recently moved into her new'home'.

Her name is Alyce and I have known her since the late 60's.
At that time I dated her daughter and was always at their place.

Alyce is from Halifax and grew up as a child in the area she has just moved into.

Due to health issues over the past year, 
she has had to give up her beautiful condo overlooking Halifax Harbour.

So this move was a difficult one for her.
Alyce is a sweetheart and she hasn't changed all that much over the years.
She is still feisty and actively expresses her opinions on everything
like she used to years ago.

Myself and Alyce

It was a surprise visit and luckily she was home.
She took us on a tour of her building
which looks like the inside of a fancy resort villa.
Everything she would ever need is there.

I asked what she thought of the place and she replied
that she liked her home a lot better.
We totally understood.

We had a few laughs and solved a few 'world problems'
and agreed to come back and try out the restaurant's menu.
I tell you, the place is unbelievable.

Ron and Alyce.

We had lost touch over the years and by chance met Alyce and her daughter
a few years ago at a restaurant. We all get together when the daughter is in town.
And hope to next month when Alyce will be celebrating her 90th birthday.


  1. Alyce, are you sure you have her age correct? A beautiful lady who looks nowhere near that age, so please tell her so, specially after I saw her comments earlier, was it on facebook? No need for photo touch ups at all.

  2. wow...alyce is the youngest looking 94 year old ever!

  3. Is there something in the Halifax water that keeps everyone looking so young and vibrant?

  4. Wow! Alyce looks wonderful! I'm glad that she has found a good place to live; but, oh how hard it must be to leave your home behind! I am glad that SD is doing better. And thanks for telling me that you used Picassa. I'm mostly floundering around clueless in that program. But I'll have to check it out again. It always insists on loading all of my 50,000+ photos. Have a happy weekend, Jim.

  5. 94? WOW... I can't believe it. She looks MUCH younger. I wonder, like Debra, what they heck is in your drinking water? Have you got the fountain of youth over there? LOL...


Hey, I really like your comments and appreciate the time you took to do so.
