November 12 – Part 3

Farm 104On November 12, my Grandpa T turned “94 years young,” as he would say. 

In 1915 (the year of his birth), the world was a different place.  It was mid-World War I.  The House of Representatives rejected a proposal giving women the right to vote.  Babe Ruth hit his first home run.  People traveled in horse-drawn carriages.  TVs had not yet been invented.  Computers, let alone the Internet, were probably considered as preposterous and space-age as the Jetsons. 

Despite a 6-foot fall off of a ladder last year, Grandpa remains in great shape.  Even at 94, he still drives his Cadillac and lives at home with his cats, Wrigley (named after Wrigley Field) and Tiger. 

Grandpa is the biggest Cubs fan I know.  I’m pretty sure he’s determined to live until the Cubs win the World Series, even if that means living to be 172. 🙂

Happy Birthday, Grandpa T!  I love you!
