They Say It's Your Birthday

We celebrated Pop-Pops's 70th birthday this afternoon. All the locals invaded "Frick Manor North" for an afternoon of food, stories and general non-sense.
The 70 theme weighed heavy through out the afternoon. "Goose" gave him 70 boiled peanuts, "H" gave him 70 hotel room keys, "The Wife" gave him 70 paper clips to help him keep it all together and I showered him with 70 "Varsity" hats and cups.
He also got a scrap book with each years history for the day of his birth for all 70 years (it was a very thick book) and autographed copy of Andrew Weil's latest book "Healthy Aging"
We even managed to snag a picture wearing our official Varsity hats. It took at least 3 of us to figure out the self timer on the camera plus I needed another second or two to get fully into the picture.
I am not sure if eating at the Varsity lends itself to healthy aging or not, but damn they have got good hotdogs..................
