I hope I make it to 80. I hope when I am 80, I can be living comfortably and happy somewhere with my family nearby. By the time I am 80, I will have been retired from my current job for at least 23 years. Maybe I will have another job after that. Carolynn will be 61 and Catherine will be 59. When I am 80, it will be 2057. We will be over halfway through the century. I might have grandkids and even great grandkids.
Today my grandpa turned 80 years old. I didn’t know what to get him for his birthday. I mean really, what do you get for a man who is 80? So I am cooking spaghetti sauce. Grandpa likes food. There will be meatballs too. Later this week there will be homemade chicken noodle soup. Grandpa likes it when I make the homemade noodles. I will make him plenty of fall favorites like my “substandard” pumpkin bread or my “not as good as…” bread pudding. He likes those too.
After my sauce is done cooking we will take him some. I am sure he is out having dinner right now.
Happy birthday Grandpa. I hope 80 is amazing.
