My grandpa turns ninety years old today! Man. That's old. I hope I get to be ninety.

He's a pretty cool cat. I wish we knew each other better. He used to own a boat. And he was super into technology: he had a camcorder before anybody else, and he bought the Odyssey, which was the first home video game system. We should get that guy a computer.

He also fought in WWII. He rode a motorcycle in the war. He rode one at home, too, and that's why my grandma liked him, because he rode a motorcycle. He and his friends used to ogle her as she walked her dog in the neighborhood.

Happy birthday, Grandpa!

Your grandpa sounds a lot like my Uncle George, down to the motorcycle. Incidentally, I've had some responses to the What Can littlewashu do in Montreal post: http://fearsclave.livejournal.com/765712.html

holy genes batman!

I am always really surprised when I hear people my age still having living grandparents. if anyone in my family lived past 70 I would totally use it when meeting someone new. My pickup line would be, "marry me and our kids may live forever"... chicks dig that right?? um... right? wait, where are you going?

Seriously, that is awesome... go grandpa!

Man, your Grandpa and my grandpa would have gotten along great, what with their love of tech.

I hope he had a great birthday!
