Grandpa Jack

Some of you have met my fabulous Grandpa Jack. He is my mom's dad and lives in San Diego. Senior year at Fox, Marisa, Shara and I spent a week there and got spoiled rotten by him. Sunday was his 95th birthday. He was up in Seattle for my cousin's high school graduation, so Forrest and I got to spend some time with him. I will upload pictures later, but I just wanted to say how amazing my grandpa is. He still drives, lives on his own, and has a more active social life than I do. Physically he is slowing down, but his mind is still really quick. He and his friends have dinner parties all of the time - including a beer tasting party because Grandpa doesn't like wine. :) My grandpa likes to tell this story of what makes a good marriage. My aunt Laura asked him what makes a good marriage and he told her "It takes love to get it started, commitment to keep it going..." and in the background my grandma pipes up with "And a very tolerant wife!" Happy Birthday Grandpa!
