100 Years Young!
Isn't this a handsome gent?
Would you believe he turned 100 years old yesterday?
He did! Thanks to my Meals on Wheels route, I've had the opportunity to become his friend, and let me tell you, he is quite the sweetheart.
After we sang Happy Birthday and gave him his cake, I asked him if he'd share the secret to his long life and happiness. "There's no secret," he said. "I was lucky enough to marry a pretty little girl and let her take care of me." So that's it: luck and love!
May we all be so fortunate!
And may we all take every opportunity for a free hug! (Notice the loving hand around my shoulder :) )
Have a wonder-full weekend, y'all!
Before you go, tell me, what do you hope old age holds for you?
And enjoy this little tune. My visit with the Birthday Boy makes me think they should change the words. How about when I'm ninety-four? Or maybe one hundred four!
