So Granddad turned 90!
90 can you believe that?
That is a very long time to live.
We went away for the weekend to a rental vacation home to celebrate Granddad’s birthday. Adults only. It was a nice time away. It was so interesting to sit around the table in celebration of Alex’s Granddad’s 90th. Granddads brother was there as well. He is 88. They are both in fine health.
It’s inspiring to think of knowing someone, so close to you for so long don’t you think?
Siblings are such a special relationship. Despite distance and possible differences they are there by your side from a young age until hopefully much later in life.
On Alex’s side both of the men on his Mothers side of the family have lived long healthy lives.
In my family both of my Grandmothers are both in their mid to late 80’s.
I always wonder at longevity. There really is no set model to follow to live a long life. My grandmothers while active ladies most certainly were not the type of women to go out and jog or go to the gym. They gardened and walked. They both smoked at some point during their lives and both enjoyed having evening drinks. So I am going to continue to enjoy my evening drink and keep finding excuses to not run, I’d rather walk.
Cheers to family and to health.
