Happy 85th Birthday, Mary!
Mary Bodio celebrated her birthday yesterday evening at a party given by some of her friends. I stopped by to give her a special hug. Mary is one of the "original" Palletteers. After coming to St. Croix on vacation in 1988, Mary fell in love with the island. She's been an annual "snow bird", painting with the Palletteers when she's here, ever since. What a vibrant and spirited lady! Mary's a great example of someone who is 85 years young...not old! In Polish we follow our "Happy Birthday" song with another one, called "Sto Lat" in which we wish the birthday person 100 years! So, sto lat, Mary!
