Default 94 years young today

Pawpaw, my maternal grandfather. I can only hope Iím able to do half as much as he does when I get that age. Still lives by himself, Granny passed 5 years ago Labor Day. Still drives, does most all the yard work on 2 acres. Looks forward to getting that last deer hunt in. Heís been saying that for the last 5 years. WWII vet, served in the army in the Philippines.

Hunter and I with him today.

Happy Birthday to your PawPaw. He does look fit as a fiddle.


Enjoy every minute, cause I sure miss mine. He's been gone 12 years now. He'd have been 95 two days ago and not a day goes by that I don't think of him.

Another picture my mom got of him the other day. She handles most of his day to day stuff- dr appointments, bank/ bills etc. and does some cooking for him. His eyes lit up when I told him I was taking her a mess of catfish for him. (We caught 32 yesterday)
