|Dad didn't make a wish as he said all his wishes came true|
just having his family there.
Dad wanted just the 4 of us to have a quiet dinner, but since it was such a momentous birthday, 90, I decided at the last minute to include two gal pals who just live a few houses down. One friend brought her fiancé. We had another young chap who might write dad's bio there too. Then another friend who didn't get the cancellation called and we had her come too, for a total of 5 adult guests and two children of one of my gal pals.
Thank goodness when my brother and family arrived, we at least had quite enough food to go around as by then they were starved. They brought a yummy birthday cake with Happy 90th written on it and saved the day as mom and failed in that department since it was only going to be us 4 for dinner, we didn't get a special one made. Mom had some desert he liked, but not with Happy 90th on it!
When it came time for my dad to blow out the 1 candle, we didn't want to burn the house down with 90 candles and take an hour to light them ahhaha (he might have fallen asleep by then), he thought long and then said, "Well goodness, I have no more wishes as my wish came true with both my children, their spouses, grandkids and 1 great grandson here right now!"
