Years ago my granddad fell ill and had to go to our local hospital. My mom and my brother David went to admissions to start the paperwork. Everything was going well until mom mentioned granddad's birthdate which was May 2, 1898. That's when my brother lost it....falling on the floor of admissions laughing hysterically. Mom stopped mid sentence to admonish him...to no avail. He could not fathom that our granddad had been born in another century. How was this possible? Mom made him leave the building and go sit in the car. Of course I had to go with him to make sure he didn't draw more attention to himself....sigh.....little brothers are very tiresome.
When she came out, needless to say, she was very angry with brother David but he was still laughing and trying to figure out how all this could be. I wanted to hit him over the head with a heavy object.
Anyway, I want to acknowledge my granddad's birthday today. He would be 124 today.
WOW! I can still hear my brother's laughter.
Happy Birthday to everyone whose born on May 2nd!
