daily bliss: birthdays

Today my Grandpa V turns 90! Would you believe that I could not find a "Happy 90th Birthday" card? 85, 95, and 100 were all represented but not 90.

My Grandpa's 90 years have been filled with adventures and achievements: he's a patent holding General Motors retiree, and he's also a World War II Prisoner of War. He and a buddy escaped from a prison camp in Italy, where the prisoners worked out an elaborate food bartering system, and survived the grueling Italian Alps on the kindness of Italian peasants and luck. Now he tends to the family blueberry farm, re-beads Native American slippers, and enjoys hunting and golf.

Happy Birthday, Grandpa!
