A Very Special Celebration

My sister & I recently put our heads together to plan a very special celebration for our parents 50th wedding anniversary. We started out by flying my niece, Aja, in from New Orleans for as a surprise. She’s my parents' only grandchild (well, their only 2-legged grandchild - they have a couple of the 4-legged varieties), and therefore the apple of their eye. I wish I’d been able to snap a picture of their faces when she walked through the door!
The second surprise was a dream come true for my mom. I can’t count the number of times I’ve heard her talk about riding in a ‘chauffer driven Rolls’. Well, lo & behold, Prestige Limo service in Roanoke has one - a 1956 Silver Cloud Rolls Royce to be exact. It is an absolutely beautiful car! My mom was over the moon about it. She’s talked of little else since.
