Dotty is 95 years old and lives with Alzheimer's. She was diagnosed in 2004.

I learned something today that I had never heard before. Dotty mentioned the Lobster Club in south Philadelphia in the video.

The Lobster Club turned 100 years old in 2007. After a little investigation, I found out it is about a block and one half from where my mother lived as a young girl.

The members of the Lobster Club also performed in the famous Mummers Day Parade on New Year's Day in Philly.
