Two short of a century.
Just wanted to send out a quick "happy birthday!" to my grandpa, Sture, who as of today has spent 98 years on this earth. Two years short of a century and his turn on the Today show Smuckers jar with Willard Scott. Unfortunately I have to wait until I get over this cold until I can go visit and wish him a happy birthday in person, so for now it's a shout out in cyberspace, a card, and a copy of 101 Reasons to Love the Cubs sent over with my dad. I thought about ripping out the last 3 reasons to make the book match Grandpa's age, but I think that would just tick him off. As if being a Cubs fan for 98 years without seeing them win the World Series isn't bad enough.
