This is my Grandpa with each of my boys when we were back in the states for holidays.
He is turning ninety today.
It is hard for me to fathom just how much this wonderful Grandpa has seen and felt in his days! 

My Grandpa is an epic fisherman and hunter. When he came to visit us at Lake Almanor - which he did a lot - he would always take us fishing.  I used to love going fishing with Grandpa, drinking a Shasta Grape Soda and learning how and where to catch delicious rainbow and brown trout.  The latter being the best because, "those ones are good eatin!" with their beautiful brown belly fat. Of course - he'd always clean my fish. He and my dad are always good like that!

My Grandpa also has the best lemon tree - hands down. 
I reckon it's because he put the fish guts underneath it! 

He has always had a veggie patch and brought us loads of homegrown produce.

His nickname for me is "Miss America!!!"

I love him very dearly and I wish for him a magical day surrounded by friends and family. And many more years of the same and out there with his line in the water!
I wish I could magically appear and give him a big Grandpa cuddle.
