He's 100 So He Can Hang Up On Me If He Wants To

You got it; Grandpa hung up on me, "again". I said, "Happy Birthday Grandpa, this is your granddaughter, Chanice.....he paused and the slammed the phone down. I wasn't too surprised since if you have been following me, you may recall that he has had a track record with doing that.

This time, though, I thought about it and came to the conclusion that if I was 100 and probably getting tons of telephone calls and wanting to watch sports instead, I think I'd hang up too! In fact, if I make it to 100, then I sure my kids and grandkids let me run butt naked in the street if I want to or go to an all you can eat buffet or go and sing karaoke or even to Disneyland because it's MY day. Also, I would pray that I had all my teeth still because you'd bet I'd want the biggest cheesecake ever!

If I was 100, I'd probably invite everyone I know to a big birthday bash. Of course, you all would be there too! If I chose to dance on the tables, I hope you'd all join in and dance too.

Well, I know he won't read this because he has no idea what a computer is, let alone, Facebook, email and surfing the 'net...but I hope he does have a great birthday! Maybe I need to plan a road trip to OK really soon to visit with him (even though he won't know me.)

Happy 100th birthday, Grandpa!

Your plans for a 100 year party are great. Why wait for that cheesecake? You handled the hang up well and as you say, at 100 he has earned the right to do what he wants.

Happy birthday to your grandpa. Having reached 100, he has certainly earned the prerogative to do whatever he wants to do. :)

You should at least post a pic of this 100 year old firecracker so we can "see" him. He sounds like quite the character! Happy birthday to him! And YES, you should make a trip to OK to see him. What are you waiting for? You and your daughter jump in that car and head east! :-) Then come by Florida too.

That's awesome. Happy Birthday to your grandpa! In my Italian family we have a saying when we toast: Cent'anni!

It's a short way of saying "May you live 100 years", which I wish for you as well! :)
