Happy 99th birthday!

Ed's 99th birthday_Staats 9838It’s not too many times that family can gather to celebrate someone’s 99th birthday, but we were fortunate to have that opportunity tonight.  With a full table of family from near and far, we toasted Ed on achieving his birthday milestone.  Thanks to a fun “quiz,” we learned that a car cost $625 when Ed started driving, and we listed many things that have come into existence during his lifetime including TV, cell phones, space flights, and computers.  99 years is good reason to celebrate.  Here’s to the upcoming year, Ed, and we’ll all look forward to gathering again next year to celebrate #100.  Happy birthday!
