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!
