Eighty-five years ago today, my grandpa Ernie was born. Twenty years later, he met my grandma, and they were married on his birthday. Years later, their youngest child, my mother, had their only granddaughter on that day.

January 30th has always been a special day to me, not just because it’s my birthday, but because I shared it with Grandpa and the anniversary of my grandparents.

Oh my GOD! My grandpa's name is Ernie. And that's what all the grandkids call him (instead of Grandpa).

I missed your birthday by a day. I owe you TWO shots...

Isn't that wonderful that you share that day with your grandparents? Talk about timing. Have a wonderful birthday. Be sure and make a wish.

Happy Birthday...

It was great to see you at your apt. A Girl in DC and my roommate had a good time, as did I. And, that pizza was the best.

Thanks for having us, and here's to a great year...
