We stopped by my grandpa's house today so that Maria could say goodbye before she leaves. These two share a special bond because they share a birthday. My grandpa has always called her his birthday girl.
He's 93(!) and I'm pretty sure that Maria expects him to not be around when she gets back. Every time I leave I think that that will be my final goodbye, but my grandpa is resilient! He still lives independently and refuses to live with my parents or in a home.
He's so cool. That's a fact. One thing that makes him even cooler?
His name is Archie.
