100 Years

That wild-haired little boy in the middle of this picture?
That's my grandfather. He'll be 93 next month.
Which is impressive enough in itself.
The little girl with the big(ger) floppy bow and the crossed ankles?
That's his big sister, Edna.
She is 100 years old.
Which is really impressive.
Tonight, we will gather with family, some of whom we haven't seen in years,
to celebrate such a magnificent milestone.
A very happy birthday, indeed.
