...THAT'S what I'M talking about!

90... not just years of being alive, but of 'living'.
...he and his sweetheart of 64 yrs. just celebrated their Wedding anniversary in Oct.,
...they both still live unaided in their own house,
...he tends their gardens and mows their lawn,
...he actively participates in Rotary Club,
...he is in charge of donations to the local food pantry,
...takes his 'bride' for her weekly hair appointment
Every morning he stops by the store where I work to join us for a cup of joe/a baked goodie and share in local news / gossip from 9-9:45am (any later than 10am departure and 'the wife' is calling to check on him! Likewise, if he doesn't show up, WE are calling to check on him!!)HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
(PLEASE don't anyone submit my lame attempt at 'cake decorating to CAKE WRECKS - it's been a while since my Wilton cake decorating classes!!!)

That is definitely NOT a cake wreck--it's a work of art! That was sooooo nice of you to do that and I know he appreciated the heck out of it. Way to go, y'all!

So not a cake wreck!

I think that's so awesome...truly an example of, "it's not just the years in your life, but the life in your years." I think he and the missus may be my idols. :-)
