Happy 100th Birthday, Great Gramma Gracie!
Today is the day! My grandmother, Gracie, was born May 9, 1908. (yes that photo of the baby is actually her!) She is celebrating all month with little dinner and pinochle parties with her friends and local family.
The big party is in mid-June. That will be a three day event with about 400 people in attendance. It should be noted that the population of the town is just over 200! We are going to double the population that weekend!
Gramma said today, "Live it up now cuz when you hit one hundred, it starts to go downhill". I guess she tires more easily now. Not that going downhill will stop her any, it might just slow her down a bit. Maybe the rest of us will be able to keep up with her if she slows down!
