You Know You're In South St. Louis When...

No matter what you did on Sunday, I can top it! I went to a reception and sit-down dinner for a woman who has been a nun for 70 years. Yes, 70 years. For those of us who so fear commitment that we never buy the same shampoo twice, 70 years is both scary and amazing. The good sister is 92, physically fit, sharp as a tack, and still working! There were about 150 people there. She not only greeted everyone, she was on her feet almost the whole time, working the room, visiting with every person at every table. She was still going strong when I left three hours later.

Oh, the South St. Louis part . . . there was an open bar (beer and wine). :)
