Grandmother does 100

Here we are in snowy and cold Western Virginia for a very special birthday party. My Grandmother turns 100 years old today the 11th of February. While I am not sure she will register all of the importance, it is a very special day. She will most often get angry if you tell she is 100 as she insists she is 89. It is virtually impossible to grasp what the 100 years has seen. Automobiles, electricity, radio, television, space travel, home computers and even iPods did not exist when she was born. Not only that but WW1, WW2, Korea, Viet Nam, Iraq 1, Iraq 2. Like I said it is not something I can grasp. She has outlived all of her brothers and sisters and all of her children and two husbands and it wasn’t easy.

Happy Birthday Ruby from your first Grandson.
