Happy 90th Birthday, grandpa!
Above: Grandpa is number 9 “Doc”
The above photos of my grandfather were taken last Thursday (Jan 17th, 2013) during his weekly hockey game. Reuters were there during his game to photograph and interview him, there’s an article about him here. I did mention he’s 90 years old, right? And he still plays hockey every single week!
I couldn’t be more proud of him. He’s such an inspiration and it makes me very happy that he’s staying active and getting such good exercise. He also goes for long bike rides during the summer, does all kinds of fixings on the house, and yard work – he’s got a fantastic vegetable garden that he’s grown himself!
He also sends me letters written on his type writer, a machine some of you may not even comprehend as the evolution of technology has replaced type writers with laptops, iPads, and SmartPhones. I love his type writer letters. I get email updates from his wife too, written from their iPad. Oh, and we’ve Face timed with them a number of times too. Gosh, my grandparents are pret-ty amazing.
Happy Birthday grandpa, I love you!
