Happy Birthday to Uncle Fritz

Friday, May 4th is my Uncle Fritz's birthday and he is going to be 85 - still drives, golfs and does his own yard work.  Although I've talked to him until I'm blue in the face, he won't give up doing his own yard work.  They are selling their house this Fall and moving to an Assisted Living facility duplex - where they have no yard work, they have a cleaning service that comes in once each week and they have the option of 3 cooked meals each day, he said they only would be doing 2 because they don't like breakfast.  My Aunt can no longer get around to cook, but they are both still alert, quick witted and can discuss today's most current headlines with ease.  But, they won't live so far away from medical assistance if needed, etc.  I'm so happy with their selection.
