A GENUINE ANTIQUE!

Mister's grandfather turns 100 tomorrow, March 23d! I think that qualifies him as an official antique! Gee, maybe I should have saved this post for Vintage Thingies Thursday!

His (and my MIL's) church had a party for him Sunday afternoon. He was a pastor in his younger day, and he also married Mister and me! Would you believe that he was driving up until about three months ago? And the only reason he stopped was because of his bad hip - not his eyesight or anything! Amazing! Here are a few party photos:

This is Grampy (Thomas Alton Stewart) in his Stewart plaids - he's from Nova Scotia.

We had a bagpiper for entertainment - he played about 8 or 10 tunes.

This is Me, Grampy, MIL, Teen, and Mister. Pre-teen left earlier with her cousin.
Tonight we all (Grampy, MIL, Mister, me, Pre-teen, Mister's two brothers, two little cousins, and a few of the Nova Scotia relatives) went to dinner at Bugaboo Creek.

A good time was had by all!

What a darling man he is in his plaid jacket! Happy Birthday to Grandpa! God Bless him, that he could still be driving if not for the bum hip. I bet he's still sharp as a tack too. And it's good to see you too, Sue! I'm happy to have a pretty face to go along with your cherry world. Can I have your gorgeous hair, please?!
See you later for Rednesday!

You have such long hair! So beautiful!!! Wah! Mine is growning a tiny bit since I went crazy and chopped it off after that dye job attempt.
