Well, I'm back from my time in California. Mom and I went out to throw my grandpa an 80th birthday party and I'm happy to report it was a big success! We had a camouflage theme, since grandpa is a big hunter and fisherman, and nearly everyone we invited showed up! He had a great time, and he really deserved it. I don't know a kinder, more patient or more compassionate person and I try everyday to live up to his brilliant example.
