Our Mum was one of eight siblings and now there's only two left.
Aunty Bettie is in her eighties and I popped around to see her the other day.
She likes to keep active and is out and about most days, playing card games, lawn or indoor bowls and ten pin bowling as well as keeping in touch with people in the local community.
We chatted for a while and then she said she wanted to share her latest fun activity, Claw Arcade Games.
She is obviously quite talented at playing because she showed me the ones pictured and then she took me to the garage where she had seven bags of them, each with ten of these toys that she is going to deliver to the local hospital for distribution to children.
With fun activities like this I think she will be around for a few years yet.
Your Aunt Bettie is a sweetheart. She has found a great way to keep her mind and body active and also a wonderful way to help others, too.
My mother was from a family of eight, too, but sadly they are all gone. Cherish your aunts and uncles while you can.
