Because of covid my Mom wasn’t able to have a party for her 70th birthday last year. So we had her party at our family gathering in August.
When my Grandma died some years ago, I looked at all the old family pictures from the 50s and younger and with those pictures in mind I wrote in her obituary: “For me she was the calming role model and responsible for a lively and cheerful big family in which there were as good as no quarrels – without any psychology books.”
When I look at the pictures of this event, I know that she did very well and still effects us all today, seven years after she went away forever.
As every year, I had my birthday beginning of January. But this year it wasn’t possible to have some friends over. So I decided to do it differently this time. I invited every one of them separately to a Covid-safe meeting, either to
a walk at night in the city
or a hike on the countryside
or a video chat
And I’m still on it. It will take more than three month and it’s great. Don’t get me wrong: I could really have a party and some food with friends right now, but I had a lot of good conversations that I wouldn’t have had on a gathering with a lot of other people.
So here ist the documentation til now:
Walk in the Park with Edi
Videochat with Elke from Hongkong
Elke was “imprisoned” in her hotel room at the time. She was in quarantine for 18 days. She even had an “ankle cuff” on her arm.

During my birthday party I wanted to install a Photo Booth with a classical tripod and a cable switch in my bedroom like I did last year but I lost the tripods’ plate and so I did the photos myself, or Alice did them. As you can see in the pictures: All my friends are […]
