My grandpa turned 90 last week, and here are a few pictures from his party. There were 5 generations represented there!
Here is a picture of the birthday boy, and one of his cake. It looks like his business card and reads, "Preacher by profession, Craftsman by trade, Fisherman by choice." He is a neat man, and we are grateful to have had him for a grandpa. He gave his "last sermon" to all of us that afternoon, and he said something that he's been telling us for years - a Chinese proverb "Die young, as late as you can" and a poem that he wrote to go along with it. I can't remember word-for-word, but the gist is to be nice to that old man that you'll be someday, for his aches and woes depend on things you do today. He talked so sweetly about his bride who was not there for his birthday, the first he's celebrated without her in over 60 years. I hope that Joel and I are still that in love after 60 years.
We took a cruise. . . or atleast played on a structure that looks like Noah's ark :)
