Happy Birthday Grandma D!

Today is my Mom's Mom's birthday. She's 82 years young.

Unfortunately, none of the lotto tickets I gave her were winners... But she still liked the card. (And just to let everyone know, if she had won I wouldn't have asked for any of the prize. Personally, I think it's really tacky for gift givers to expect the recipient to share a lotto prize. But that's just my oppinion I guess...)

We had a nice spaghetti dinner at her house. (My Mom cooked it, so of course it was great.) And we went through some of my late Grandfather's photo albums from WWII. He passed away when my Mom was young, so I never got to meet him. I really regret that. He was a short man, and was therefore a tail-gunner in either a B-25 or A-25. (My Dad couldn't quite figure out which from the pictures.) He served first in Lybia, and then in Sicily. One of the bombers had over 50 mission stencils on the nose. Plus 3 fighter kills.

I really wish I had met him.

I have to talk to my Uncle about scanning all the pictures and captions from the albums some day.

But anyways, Happy Birthday Grandma! (Even though I know she'll never read this, it's the thought that counts.)
