He says he's older than dirt...


Jimmy is 71 years old today. Can you believe that? I can't, because he's the youngest 71 year old man I've ever been so close too. He's full of life and energy and ready to go anywhere on a moments notice. He's very spontaneous and there is nothing that he wouldn't do for anyone who called upon him. He's ready to help at the drop of a hat, and would loan you anything that he has, including giving you the shirt off his back. That's just the kind of a person he is.

Jimmy is a loving father, grandfather, great-grandfather and has been a wonderful step-father to my children. When I met and married Jimmy I never dreamed that I would be getting so much more in return. He is such a loving & kind man and as I have said before, he treats me like a princess.

Today is Jimmy's birthday and tomorrow we will celebrate his birth as we sit down for our Thanksgiving dinner, and as we say grace before feasting, we will also give thanks to our Dear Lord for allowing us to be part of Jimmy's life.

Happy Birthday Jimmy!
We all love you.

Happy birthday to your darlin' Jimmy! Hope it was a wonderful celebration.
Your mutual appreciation of each other is a wonderful example to the younger generations. No wonder they want to spend time with you two.
You are a match made in heaven.
