abuelo turns 99. or maybe 100.

his family records say he’s 99 – his military records say he’s 100. nobody really knows, so next year he’ll celebrate his 100th again just to be sure. you would NEVER KNOW he’s 99 (or maybe 100). his mind is sharp as a tack and his body is in better shape than most americans half his age. in fact the last time we visited abuelo, he was all stove up because he fell while riding his bicycle. all that and the guy plays a mean game of dominos. see you next year at your 100/101 year party, abuelo.

    Great story. It’s good to see that getting old doesn’t necessarily mean wheelchairs, canes, and nursing homes. It’s great that you captured “Abuelo” in his own element. The guy looks happy as can be. I hope to have some of that clarity if I reach that age or somewhere around it.
    Good Job.
