Happy Birthday Grandma!

Today is my paternal grandmother's 100th birthday!
That's right, y'all.
I said 100!!!
The family had a big party for her on Sunday. We heard that Willard Scott was supposed to announce her birthday this morning on the Today show. I forgot to set my DVR so I'm not sure if that happened. She also had someone from the House of Representatives come to the party to present her with a special certificate. My grandparents were huge Cincinnati Reds fans. I have a lot of memories of the games always being on the radio or TV when I visited as a kid. So they're supposed to give her a birthday shout out at today's game. The pic below is my dad's branch of the family (minus my half brother, sister and stepmother out in Wyoming).
Gotta scoot. Off to catch a plane to Maryellen. My flight leaves at 3:04pm and it's right now 1:50pm. I like to live dangerously. See ya soon, Mare!
