Happy 90th Birthday Dad!

Saturday, August 6th was my dad's 90th birthday. The picture above is his senior High School picture and we used it for the front of his invitation. Inside it said, "Guess Who's Going To Be 90?" It was a surprise party with 30+ family, friends, and neighbors.
In order for guests to get to know my dad a little bit better we had photos displayed all over the room, I made a poster of events of 1915, including a price index, other famous people born that month and year, songs, books, and the number one toy for the year, Raggedy Ann. There was even a group of old school photo's where people could try to pick out my dad. Also during a long road trip, Johnny and I compiled a little quiz about my dad. The quiz ended with something I said to my brother we just had to include:

John is known in his family for which of the following sayings:
A. What’s for Dinner? LAMB – It’s not B-A-A---D.
B. Eat your roughage, it’ good for your bowels.
C. A place for everything and everything in it’s place.
D. Nothings a bargain if you don’t need it.
E. All of the above
F. None of the above

The answer, you only have to know my father, I think everyone got it right, it is: E. All of the Above!

(See picture below. Pretty good for 90, I'd say!)
