My grandfather is 88 years old. He will be 89 in July.
He was born in 1920 on a farm that didn't have plumbing or electricity.
He served as a Navy Airedale during World War II on the USS Franklin, a ship that bore his own name. The Franklin survived two naval disasters-- he was on the ship for both.
Five years ago, he was completely blind in both eyes. A year ago, he had a surgery to recover his sight in one of them.
Today, he got his first computer.
