Grandpa's 90th birthday

Almost the whole clan was around for Grandpa's 90th birthday. Cousin Danny would have been there, but got ill at the last minute. As usual, I got captivated by Spanish moss and almost took more pictures of trees than of relatives. But there's plenty of pictures in my flickr set.

We took a short outing along the Withlacoochee River, which was nice. Too cold and cloudy for the gators, but we saw some birds and scenery.

Here's a great photo collage, with pictures of Grandpa & Grandma:
Lee & Julie put together this great collage
Be sure to click All Sizes, so you can really appreciate him dressed as a Playboy Bunny, or his California Raisin outfit. I'm not the only one in the family who enjoys Halloween.

And here's a little video I shot of him explaining a bit of the collage. I wish I'd recorded one of his many warm thank-yous to friends and family, but this will have to do.
