celebrating ol’ ornery

April 4, 2014

Today is my beloved yet ornery Grandpa’s birthday. The man is 94 and sometimes worries about losing his youth. I don’t think he has a lot to worry about; he’s ornery enough that old age is staying far away from him. Every time I talk to him, Gramps tells me about all of the batches of wine he has in process, as well as his workout regimen. Once in a while he’ll mention a few black hairs that he’s found among the lush silver hair that tops his head. “I must be regaining my youth; my hair’s turning back to its original color!” he says with a chuckle.

I love that man, even though he gives me a tough time.

Happy Birthday, Grandpa!






Aside: This was a special occasion, so Grandpa was on his best behavior.

Usually he scowls at me something fierce.

And then I have to scowl back.

    What beautiful pictures! Happy birthday to your grandpa! Today is my maternal grandfather’s birthday, too. He passed away before I was born, but my mom tells me we would have had so much fun together!
