Happy Birthday!


This is my dear grandmother. She is the kindest and sweetest human being I've ever known. She turns 89 (WOW!!) today and still enjoys occasionally playing her poker machines here in Vegas. I'm going to skip night out with my friends today so I can take her out to eat and to take a crack at her favorite machines. Wish her luck!

By the way, I DO NOT gamble. I think it's the most boring and lackluster pastime I can think of. So, while she plays her machines, I sit next to her with my iPod in "shuffle" mode and babysit for the next three hours. Now wish ME luck. LOL!

God bless your Grandma. What a darling woman. Give her a huge hug from Auntie A.

God has great rewards for grandsons who love and care for their grandmas.

Tom, i don't know what you did (unless it was my browser display problem) but now i can see the photo of your grandmother.

She has such a sweet look about her, she's also an attractive lady, she doesn't look her age at all, but much younger. If i live that long, which i doubt i will, but if i did, i would hope that i could look half as good :-)

Jessica-

Thank you for your kind wishes.


ukok-

God bless you! I, too, don't think I'll make it as far as she did, so I'm thankful when someone I care does:)

Happy Belated Birthday to your dear Grandmother!

My mom just celebrated her 75th on the 17th. And my Grandmother will be 100 next month!

Thanks so much for putting Melissa's picture up and for your post on your blogs and prayers. I have posted an update on my blog.

God Bless!
