Grandpa Don celebrated his 80th Birthday this weekend with stories of car racing, cars with illegal plates for his farm kids, and car-shopping ad infinitum with Dorothy. Many friends and family gathered from far and near for Saturday night's buffet at the Eagle's Lodge in Leavenworth. More than 100 visitors came, some of them meeting my children for the first time! Captain missed the big party, but he is going over for lunch this afternoon at his dad's house with the Nebraska cousins who stayed over. Happy Birthday, Don!!
