If you have ever been in our store, you may have seen Gary's father-in-law, Walter. He spends most of his day in the back, working on packaging and assembling paper packs and such and helping with the behind the scenes stuff. He is almost always there -- 40 to 50 hours a week with more energy than all of us.
Today is Walter's birthday -- he is ninety-five years old.
We had a party for him on Tuesday in our classroom before some of us left for the Texas show this weekend. And that means food . . .
. . . and cake! We did this five years ago on his 90th birthday, and I made a point of taking a picture of Walter with his children, Jim and Peggy.
So I did it again on Tuesday. Then we strong-armed Gary and Jim's wife Mary Jo to join the picture. Happy Birthday, Walter!
