"How old would you be if you didn't know how old you are?" -- Satchel Paige

Somewhere between building a railing on a 50-stair stairset, hand-firing the propeller on his 1946 seaplane, diving into an ice cold Maine lake every morning, and bringing a clan together from the corners of the country, my grandpa found time to turn 83.

His physical scars point to a life lived, his smile to a life lived well.  

Thanks for the motivation, Papa.
