happy birthday, grandpa jack!

it was our privilege to host Grandpa Jack Tippett's 89th birthday party. that said, we're not sure how much "hosting" actually went on. we did so little and we appreciate every one's contribution and attendance. due to a bit of wind, we were unable to light Jack's candles. they have been carefully stored and we plan on lighting them up next year when we celebrate his 90th.

a usual scene...it's a good thing we don't invite uncle tom to be the life of the party. :-) i always get the last jab, tom!
