I went to Granny's party today and my cousin pointed out some of the world changes in her lifetime.<br>She does not look or act 95. She was born 10/30/07.<br>•She came out to Washington from South Dakota on a wagon at the age of 3.<br>•She was alive at the same time as Mark Twain, Harriet Tubman, Pancho Villa, Alexander Graham Bell, Bat Masterson, Pierre Auguste Renoir, Clara Barton, Geronimo, & Buffalo Bill.<br>•She was 5 when the Titanic sunk.<br>•She was 7 when WWI broke out.<br>•She was 22 when the depression started.<br>•She was 25 when Hitler became dictator of Germany.<br>•She was 34 when Pearl Harbor was bombed.<br>•She was 43 when the Korean War started.<br>•She was 54 when Kenedy was killed.<br>Quite a lot of changes. She thinks email is great, too.<br>Here is a picture I took of her.<br> <br><br><br>"There are three things I've learned never to discuss with people: religion, politics, and the Great Pumpkin."<br>-- Linus Van Pelt (Peanuts)
Well iRock - Granny looks pretty durn good - better than my mom who turns 82 today - and it makes me think ahead to the stories that will be told of the changes we've seen (and have yet to see) in our lifetimes.<br><br>[color:purple]The shortest distance between two points is how far apart they are.</font color=purple>

Lots of candy, good cheer (attitude-wise) & spunk.<br>The biggest problem my mom is having in keeping her is that she wants mom to take her to Reno. My brother gave her a "gift certifcate" for a day at the local casino.She told us the story about the night she was born. "It was cold and the wind was blowing. It was a dark night. Me and Granpa were the only ones home." We all had heard it but for some reason she gets a kick out of it. She was really animated and had the best time. She was really funny but luckily my brothers and sister & I were able to add the seriousness & dignity the occasion required...<br><br><br>"There are three things I've learned never to discuss with people: religion, politics, and the Great Pumpkin."<br>-- Linus Van Pelt (Peanuts)
