Well CLKman pass the congrat on to her since it was She who spent all the time carrying the "extra" weight around for so long,
and it was her who had to look like a beached whale while he just went about his way and had a "whale" of a time.
And it was her who had to deal with the pain while everyone else just stood there and said "Push"!
And Now you are really Officially in the Old Farts Club Gramps So get your AARP Club card out and go get that beer at a discount now Hmmmmmmm?
Or you can do like my Great Grandfather did and I will always remember him for this.
He went out and got dressed up in his sundays best.... Got his picture done
Then he went and purchased a very fine pocket watch wrapped it up very carefuly, Purchased a 25 year saving bond in my name,
Got several coins that were minted the same year I was born and paper money,
Had an Copper box made at a sheet metal shop with a the above items carefuly wrapped up and sealed inside that box along with a hand written letter to me.
This box was put away and I did not know about it until I was 20..... By then Grampaw had long pasted on... I met him as a child however I was too young to really "know" him then.
I did not open the box until after my dad passed on..... the impact that it made was like so unreal... it was one of the most outstanding moments ever!
Just to think of it..... he had a picture done just for me and wrote a very long many page letter to me knowing that when I read it that he would have pasted on by then......... Thank you Grampa Thomas Williams.
