Happy 90th Grandpa!

I just have to post a big HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my Grandpa who turned 90 on the 3rd! We went down to a big family bash Labor Day Weekend. Grandpa and Grandma hosted a wonderful party at their home with most of the extended family there, as well as close friends from over the years. It was wonderful to celebrate my Grandpa. He has had a very full and interesting life. I love listening to him tell stories from his youth: Working in a dairy making butter. Meeting a beautiful young woman named Phyllis in a little church where his brother was filling in as preacher. How he earned the nick name of "Chilly Chalmers" among his fraternaty where he had the job of keeping the books, and so kept the boiler turned down low to cut costs. Serving our country during the second World War. The illness that ultimately brought him and his young family to California where he worked for Lockhead. Living the American Dream...

Happy Birthday, Grandpa! Have a GREAT 90th year!
