Phtoto of the Week 2010!

Happy Birthday dear husband! Today is his actual birthday, but we had his party on Saturday so all the children (well Deni and Dennis have been sick and were not well enough to come this time) and grandchildren could be here for it. We had a great party, had the food sent over from one of my favorite restaurants so this old lady wouldn't have to do the cooking for this one. The children collaborated on a parody of the Sponge Bob theme for him:

G is for grandpa - he's the greatest
R is for republican
A is for anywhere and anytime at all - I'll go pet my pelican
N is for nectar or maybe it's motor oil
D is for dare you to drink it
P is for plenty of bottles in the basement that we hope will never spoil
A is for amazing - yes he's amazing and he's the birthday boy - he is our Grandpa, he is our father and he's your husband Roy!!!

Now I don't think I've ever heard the Sponge Bob theme so I was totally in the dark about singing this and you may be too, but take my word for it, everyone else at the party knew it and Grandpa got a huge kick out of having it sung for him!
The kids all went together and arranged two hours of flight time for him at one of the local airports. Roy used to fly small airplanes but had to give it up a few years ago, so he's looking forward to going up again....but as co-pilot this time!
We're all looking forward to celebrating his 90th with him!!!! Happy Birthday, Dear!

What a great photo! He sure doesn't look his age, does he? Happy birthday, Roy!

I'm so glad the party was a success and you didn't have to cook. Such a shame Deni and Dennis were sick and couldn't make it.

Great photo indeed! I know that song well hee hee. What a great gift, sounds like the party overall was terrific, but then I'd expect nothing else with you handling it :) Happy birthday Roy!

Big hugs,
