Happy Birthday Grandpa Smith

Posted Wednesday, November 25th, 2009 03:14 pm GMT -6 in Family, Food

Yesterday my grandfather Donald Smith celebrated his 90th birthday at the Lexington restaurant in St. Paul with most of our immediate family. It was great visiting with everyone and the food and service were superb. I had a sirloin steak, while Colleen had the walleye almondine, which she said was one of the best she’s ever had.

My uncle gave a speech talking about his dad and it’s really amazing all of the things he’s been in his life: husband, father, citizen, patriot, bomber pilot, prisoner of war, grandfather, bank president, board member, St. Paul Winter Carnival leader, volunteer, great-grandfather, caregiver and retiree.

Cheers, Mr. Smith!
