Every year on Groundhog Day, I don't think about the weather, ok maybe a little bit, but rather I remember my paternal grandfather--Gilford Ackley French. This would have been his birthday today. He was born on 02 February 1888--you know you are getting old when you can say that your grandfather was born the century before last! Even though he's been gone since the 1960s, can you imagine the changes he saw during his lifetime such as automobiles, indoor plumbing, television--heck, radios were a big to-do back in the day. So, what I want to say is "Happy Birthday Grandpa."
Here's a couple of pics of him:
