Think about everything that has happened in history in the last 88 years. The Great Depression. World War II. Women earned the right to vote. 16 men have been President. We launched the space program and landed on the moon. Computers were invented and now serve as a major medium of communication.
My grandpa turned 88 on Thursday, so our family gathered on Saturday night to celebrate. We got him a few scratch-off tickets. It seemed as though he had a little bit of birthday luck left, because he won $5.00.
We had a cookout and finished the night with a rousing game of euchre. He seemed to really enjoy himself.
Happy birthday, Grandpa!
